Crossmyloof railway station is a railway station serving the areas of Crossmyloof and Shawlands in Glasgow, Scotland, located 1 mile 60 chains (2.8 km) from Glasgow Central. The station is managed by ScotRail and is served by trains on the Glasgow South Western Line.

The station was renovated in the 1990s, during which an overline station building was demolished. The overbridge (Titwood Road) was rebuilt in 2006.

On 6 October 2012, a Highland cow escaped the nearby Pollok Country Park and walked the rail line to this station, where it was captured and returned.[3]



The station is served by trains on both the East Kilbride and Barrhead lines, with a half-hourly frequency to each (one Barrhead service per hour extends to Kilmarnock, with 1 per day extended to Dumfries). This gives the station four departures each hour to Glasgow Central, these tend to be at 10, 20, 40 and 50 minutes past the hour, give or take a couple of minutes. Evening service is generally hourly to East Kilbride and Kilmarnock and 2 trains per hour to Glasgow Central.

Sundays see a half-hourly service to East Kilbride and Glasgow Central but there is no service to Barrhead or Kilmarnock. Passengers can change at Pollokshaws West for services towards Kilmarnock and stations to Carlisle[4]
