Pollokshaws East Station, Kilmarnock Road, built c. 1894 for the Cathcart District Rly. An island platform station, similar in most respects to those at Shawlands and Langside, but unusually the offices are on a masonry arch bridge over the White Cart Water. Approach at bot ends is by subway, that at the N end crossing Coustonholm Road on a lattice girder footbridge.

J R Hume 1974.

This intermediate station on the Cathcart Circle (suburban) line of the former Caledonian Rly was opened (by the Cathcart District Rly) on 2 April 1894. It remains in regular use by passenger traffic; the line has been electrified.

This station incorporates a bridge which carries the railway over the White Cart Water.
