About Yoker Station http://img.sidetrackedseries.info/uploads/Yoker_1499359549.png" width="500"/></center>History Glasgow Yoker and Clydebank On 4 July 1878 the Glasgow, Yoker and Clydebank Railway obtained its authorising Act of Parliament, to build a line connecting the Clydebank site with the Stobcross Railway. Local industrialists who would benefit from the line subscribed £65,000, and the remaining £17,500 was put forward by the North British Railway. The railway opened as a single line on 1 December 1882, with stations at Partick (on the Stobcross line) and Yoker. Partick could be reached by the Govan Ferry, and the Yoker station was not far from the Renfrew ferry. Goods traffic was of course significant, and the passenger service was not connected to the rest of the railway network for the time being; there was no passenger station at Stobcross. The passenger trains were not run at suitable times for the workers at first, and they continued to use the steamer. The line was worked by the North British Railway. The construction appears to have exceeded its estimated cost, for in 1888 debentures were redeemed by a preference share issue at a face value of £28,241 Now Yoker railway station is an unstaffed station which serves the district of Yoker. The station is in Clydebank in West Dunbartonshire but it is very near the boundary with Glasgow. Access can be gained from either side of the station, or onto the footbridge that is directly connected to the overpass. The station is served by Abellio ScotRail as part of the SPT network. It is located on the Argyle Line and the North Clyde Line.
