Road access, Glasgow to Kilmarnock railway
There is hard standing here which links road and railway. This would have been used when the line was rebuilt as a double track in 2009. Despite decades of fare increases which have led to once frequent travellers as myself rationing train travel (and many being priced off the network completely) there is a capacity problem and the shrinkages of the 1950s-80s period are being slowly reversed.

Some of the more eyewatering fares are planned to discourage travel and thus reduce overcrowding or the need to hire more rolling stock from one of the many middlemen of post privatisation railways. There is a gravy train.
