Description:
Partick station is a combined railway station and underground station in the Partick area of Glasgow, Scotland. It, along with an adjacent bus station, forms one of the main transport hubs in Glasgow with regular services to many locations in Greater Glasgow and wider Strathclyde. The station was one of the first to receive bilingual English and Gaelic signs, because there is a significant Gaelic-speaking population in the Partick area.

History

The first station in the area was the North British Railway Company's Partickhill railway station, opened in 1887 slightly to the north of the existing site on the opposite side of the Dumbarton Road. Soon after, the Glasgow Subway opened and its Merkland Street station, slightly to the south of the existing station site, opened in December 1896. Neither was independently known as "Partick station" as there were two other railway stations in Partick between the late 19th and mid-20th centuries: Partick Central railway station (later renamed Kelvin Hall station) was further east towards Kelvingrove with Partick West station further west.
