Drumfrochar Station

Drumfrochar is the newest station on the line, having opened in May 1998. It received a makeover in the new blue saltire livery in 2011.

Former Upper Greenock station

This long gone station stood between Drumfrochar and Winhill stations, near the Tate & Lyle sugar refinery (one of many refineries in the town - all now closed). There is little evidence left of that station.

Whinhill Station

This station stands at the west end of a tunnel. Similar to Inverkip, there is also a disused parallel tunnel. A viaduct on the disused Princes Pier line can be seen through the trees from here in the winter. A line to the former paper mill at Overton once climbed steeply away from near this point.

The bridge at Bridgend Road is at the other end of the tunnel. The line then passes above Bogston Station on the Gourock line, but there is no station on this line. The line from Gourock joins just east of here and the combined (now double track) line is elevated all the way to Port Glasgow Station.

Port Glasgow Station

This is an interchange station, serving three trains each way per hour to GourockExternal link and one to Wemyss Bay from Glasgow Central. There was once a bay platform here which served the Wemyss Bay line. The platforms were refurbished in 2009 in preparation for the new Class 380 trains. It was rebranded in the new blue saltire livery shortly afterwards.

Woodhall Station

Not all Wemyss Bay services stop here, requiring a change and short wait at Port Glasgow for a stopping train from Gourock. The old lineside hut is about a mile east of Woodhall and has since lost its roof entirely.
