Corkerhill railway station serves the Corkerhill and Mosspark neighbourhoods of Glasgow, Scotland. The station is managed by Abellio ScotRail and lies on the Paisley Canal Line, 3¼ miles (5 km) west of Glasgow Central.
The station was originally a staff halt on the Glasgow and South Western Railway, with a small network of houses having been built for workers at the Corkerhill Carriage Servicing Maintenance Depot (opened 1896); eventually the isolated village was swallowed up by the expanding Glasgow urban area with the construction of the Mosspark, Cardonald and Pollok estates. The station was opened to the public in 1923 and was rebuilt by British Railways in 1954.
1967 to 1983
Following the closure of the line to Greenock Princes Pier, the basic service was an hourly service to Kilmacolm. Some peak hour services to/from Paisley Canal and the Ayrshire Coast were also provided.
Since the reopening of the line by British Rail in 1990 services have been half-hourly eastbound to Glasgow Central and westbound to Paisley Canal, Monday to Saturdays. Currently (2016) there is an hourly service in each direction on Sundays.
