Busby railway station is in Busby, East Renfrewshire, Scotland. The station is managed by First ScotRail and is on the Glasgow South Western Line.

Busby Station - East Renfrewshire

Station History

The 1914 edition of the Ordnance Survey map shows that there was once a goods yard immediately south-east of the present station. There was also a goods line, shown as a 'mineral railway', which branched southwards off the main line immediately south of Busby Station. It passed through what is now a housing estate in the Westerton Avenue area and then swung south-westwards through what is still open land. The line then terminated in a goods yard which appears to have been in the area now occupied by housing on the street known as Birchview Drive.

There was also a station building on the Glasgow bound downline, but this was destroyed by fire in 1965.
