Barnhill railway station is in Glasgow, Scotland, 3 miles (5 km) north of Glasgow Queen Street railway station on the Springburn branch of the North Clyde Line. The station is managed by Abellio ScotRail.
It was built as part of the City of Glasgow Union Railway which provided a link across the Clyde (between the Glasgow and Paisley Joint Railway at Shields Junction and the Edinburgh and Glasgow Railway at Sighthill Junction). The line opened to goods traffic in 1875, but the station here wasn't opened until 1 October 1883, when the passenger service was extended from Alexandra Parade. Services through to Springburn weren't introduced until 1887.
Monday to Saturday daytimes there is a half-hourly service from Barnhill to Glasgow Queen Street and beyond (usually to Dumbarton Central via Yoker) southbound and to Cumbernauld via Springburn northbound.
Sundays see an hourly service between Partick and Cumbernauld between 9am and 8pm.
