Scope and Content Milngavie Railway Station, Fulton Road, Milngavie, East Dunbartonshire This shows the glazed awning over the main platform, from the north-west. This awning is supported on cast-iron columns and riveted girders. The original station building of 1863 is behind the column on the left. The branch was doubled in about 1900, and this awning was probably added at about that time. At the same time a two-sided platform, one face of which is seen here, was built to the west. The line was singled again in the 1970s, and the west-most platform line removed. 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.
