Description:
Charing Cross (Glasgow) is a railway station close to the centre of Glasgow, Scotland, serving the district of the same name. It is managed by First ScotRail and is served by trains on the North Clyde Line. It should not be confused with the Charing Cross Station in London.

Dating from 1886, it was originally part of the Glasgow City and District Railway, the first underground railway in Scotland. Nearby points of interest include Sauchiehall Street and the Mitchell Library, and some of Glasgow's larger office compounds, making this station popular with commuters. The station contains a staffed ticket office and a small branch of WH Smith.

Automatic ticket gates have now been installed and came into operation on 3 June 2011.

Services

There are regular services towards Glasgow Queen Street, Springburn, and eastbound and Partick, Dalmuir and beyond westbound.

The line is electrified and services are primarily provided by Class 320 electric multiple units, as well as a small number of newer Class 334 "Juniper" electric multiple units. All services are provided by First ScotRail, formerly under contract to Strathclyde Partnership for Transport.
