Stepps Road railway station (site), North Lanarkshire
Opened in 1831 by the Garnkirk & Glasgow Railway (needs confirmation), later part of the Caledonian Railway, this station was originally called 'Steps Road'. It closed in 1962.
View west towards Robroyston and Glasgow, before electrification. The station was just before the bridge, and to the right, where the houses now are, was a carriage shed, later carriage sidings. In 1989, British Rail opened a replacement station - see NS6668 : Stepps railway station, North Lanarkshire.
