Blairhill railway station

Blairhill railway station

Blairhill railway station is a railway station serving the Blairhill area of Coatbridge, North Lanarkshire. It is 13 km (8½ miles) east of Glasgow Queen Street railway station. The station is managed by First ScotRail and is served by trains on the North Clyde Line.


It was built opened on 1 February 1871 and was previously called Blairhill and Gartsherrie.


The street-level platform, which now bears the "portacabin" ticket office, once supported a wooden station building which housed a ticket office and newsagent. On the night of 12 January 1987, shortly after being painted in the bright orange livery of the Strathclyde Passenger Transport Executive, this building was burned to the ground.


From Blairhill trains are every 15 minutes, Monday to Saturday daytimes and half-hourly evenings and Sundays towards Glasgow Queen Street and beyond (Balloch/Helensburgh Central) westbound and towards Airdrie eastbound.
