Where did the names of the railway lines come from? Aprat from the Argyle Line, I have never heard of them. Especially "the Croy line", as no services are run that terminate at Croy, all trains to Croy go to either Edinburgh or Stirling???

Answer: Croy is the last station for which SPT is responsible. As for the other lines: Ayrshire Coast Line - connects Glasgow with the Ayrshire Coast Cumbernauld Line - connects Glasgow with Cumbernauld new town Inverclyde Line - connects Glasgow with Inverclyde (traditional name for Port Glasgow, Greenock, Gourock area) North Electric Line - one of the first two suburban lines that got electrified, and runs north of the River Clyde North Surburban Line - serves northern suburbs of Glasgow, also called Maryhill Line after its terminal (and most important) station Paisley Canal Line - named after its terminus Shotts Line - named after the last station for which SPT is responsible South Electric Line - as North Electric, but runs south of the river South West Line - no specific reason West Highland Line - route to the western Highlands Whifflet Line - named after its terminus

I think some of these names are opinion rather than those actually in use, the only ones I've ever heard of in actual use are Inverclyde, Cathcart Circle, North Electrics, Paisley Canal, West Highland and Argyle. In addition the train workings from Ayr to New Cumnock were launched as the Burns Line. My partner (SPT employee) confirms this.

Can I ask if there should be mention of SPT's replacment (The West of Scotland Transport Partnership)? 17:42, 14 December 2005 (UTC)

No Services[edit]

Why does SPT operate no services around the Glasgow area? And why on SPT stations there are First ScotRail written on them? Fila943 (talk) 05:24, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Because SPT is not a train operator, First Scotrail operate the train under contract to SPT
