Kilpatrick railway station serves the village of Old Kilpatrick in the West Dunbartonshire region of Scotland. The station is managed by Abellio ScotRail and is on the North Clyde Line, 11½ miles (18 km) west of Glasgow and the Argyle Line on Sundays.

Part of the station sits under the North end of the Erskine Bridge with Lusset Park overlooking the station from above and access to Station Road is from the South side (Westbound platform). The Lusset Glen is also accessible from the westbound platform.

Facilities[edit]

The station is a split, two-platform station with ramp access and a small ticket office. There is no auto-announcement system at present. In September 1989, an armed robbery took place and the two men held up the member of staff with double barreled shotguns.[citation needed] After this crime, the station has been unmanned until the present day.[citation needed] A woman was also killed in an apparent suicide attempt; she was struck by a train on October 2011 at the station.[1]
