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, 111⁄2 miles (18 km) west of Glasgow and the Argyle Line on Sundays.
Part of the station sits under the northern end of the Erskine Bridge with Lusset Park overlooking the station from above. Access to Station Road is from the south side on the westbound platform. The Lusset Glen is also accessible from the westbound platform.
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. After this crime, the station has been unmanned until the present day. A woman was also killed in an apparent suicide attempt; she was struck by a train on October 2011 at the station.
From Kilpatrick, there is a half-hourly service to Glasgow Queen Street usually to Airdrie. After 18:00, the trains run to Springburn. On Sundays the service uses the Argyle Line to Motherwell on Sundays.
Westbound there is a half-hourly daily service to Balloch.
The service remains half hourly in the May 2016 timetable but on weekdays and Saturdays, westbound trains now end at Dumbarton Central and eastbound trains run to Cumbernauld via Clydebank. Sunday services run half-hourly to Balloch and to Glasgow Central Low Level (and thence alternately to Motherwell via Whifflet and to Larkhall).
