Scope and Content Milngavie Railway Station, Fulton Road, Milngavie, East Dunbartonshire This shows the original station building of 1863 from the south-east. The scale of the accommodation shows the level of traffic expected from what was then a small village. To the right is part of the extensive glazed awning added in the late 19th century, and to the left is the goods station. This station has survived with little alteration, apart from the removal of the goods station. The forecourt seen here has been laid out as a car park, and is also used as a bus interchange point. This station was opened in 1863 by the Edinburgh & Glasgow Railway as the passenger terminus of a branch to Milngavie from the Glasgow, Dumbarton & Helensburgh Railway, which the Edinburgh & Glasgow had absorbed in 1862. A goods-only line extended beyond this station, serving a paper mill. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
