Mount Vernon railway station is located in the Mount Vernon area of Glasgow, Scotland. It is on the Argyle Line, 6¾ miles (11 km) east of Glasgow Central railway station. Train services are provided by Abellio ScotRail.
The Rutherglen and Coatbridge Railway opened a station on this site in 1866. It was closed to passengers in 1943 though the line through it remained open for passenger services until 1966. It was rebuilt and reopened as Mount Vernon in 1993.
Following the electrification of the line in 2014, a half-hourly service has operated to and from Dalmuir , on Mondays to Saturdays. One per hour each way is extended to/from Motherwell. There is also an all-year hourly service each way on Sundays for the first time since the line reopened in 1993 (Sunday services had previously operated only on the four weeks up to Christmas for shoppers). Prior to electrification, the service was operated by Diesel Multiple Units of classes 156 and 158 and ran to/from Glasgow Central High Level.
