Whifflet Upper and Lower railway station (site), North Lanarkshire
Whifflet Upper and Lower railway station (site), North Lanarkshire
Whifflet Upper was situated on the red bridge. It was opened as a single island platform in 1866 by the Rutherglen and Coatbridge Railway, soon to become part of the Caledonian Railway empire, and closed to passengers in 1964.
Beneath it, situated on either side of the tracks were the platforms of Whifflet Lower station, also Caledonian Railway. (Out of view to the right, the North British Railway also had a station from 1871 to 1930. No evidence of this appears to remain).
View north towards Coatbridge and Cumbernauld. The tracks diverging left lead to Glasgow Central via Carmyle.
