Airbles railway station serves the Airbles area of Motherwell, North Lanarkshire in Scotland. It is located around 12 mile (1 km) away from Fir Park stadium, home of Motherwell F.C.

History[edit]

The station was a new construction in 1989 by British Rail, on the Hamilton Circle.

The station missed out on services from the new Larkhall branch because the reopened line connects in a westerly direction as a result of the M74 now being in the location of the previous easterly junction.
