Glarus railway station
|Elevation||472 m (1,549 ft)|
|Owned by||Swiss Federal Railways|
|Operated by||Swiss Federal Railways|
The station is served by Zürich S-Bahn service S25 between Zurich and Linthal, and by St. Gallen S-Bahn service S6 between Rapperswil and Schwanden. Both services operate once per hour, combining to provide two trains per hour between Ziegelbrücke and Schwanden.
The station was opened in 1859, with the completion of the railway from Weesen. However the distinctive station building, designed by Karl August Hiller, was built between 1902 and 1903 as a replacement for an earlier structure. The station building, along with a goods shed dating from 1894, and a locomotive shed and turntable, is inscribed on the Swiss Inventory of Cultural Property of National Significance.
