Priesthill & Darnley railway station is a railway station serving the Priesthill and Darnley districts of Glasgow, Scotland. The station is managed by Abellio ScotRail and is on the Glasgow South Western Line.

History[edit]

Opened by British Rail under the ScotRail sector on 23 April 1990.

Facilities[edit]

The station is unmanned and has no ticketing provision, so all tickets must be purchased prior to travel or on board the train. There are waiting shelters on each platform and train running information is provided via CIS displays, automated announcement and help points on each side. Level access is only possible to platform 1, as platform 2 access requires the use of a steep ramp.[2]

Services[edit]

There is a half-hourly service in each direction (hourly in the evening) to Glasgow and Barrhead. Passengers for stations to Kilmarnock and beyond have to change at Barrhead, as longer distance trains do not usually call here.[3]

From 21 May 2017 there is an hourly Sunday service between Glasgow Central and Kilmarnock that calls.[4]
