Geocache Description:

Bishopbriggs railway station is in East Dunbartonshire on the Glasgow to Edinburgh via Falkirk Line, 3 1/4 miles (5.2 km) north of Glasgow Queen Street currently only served by services on the Croy Line.

Bishopbriggs was one of the original stations on the Edinburgh and Glasgow Railway, opened in 1842. During the 1960s, the station was scheduled for closure under the Beeching Axe but a local campaign managed to save it, although the original station buildings and footbridge were demolished and replaced by a modular ticket office and waiting room, as well as a new footbridge.

The ticket office and waiting room was replaced with a modern glass and steel building in 2002, of a similar design to that at Croy railway station.

There is no parking with very little provided on nearby streets.

The station was briefly featured in Bill Forsyth's 1980 film That Sinking Feeling
