Old photograph of the railway station in Carstairs, South Lanarkshire, Scotland. The station is situated close to the point at which the lines from London Euston. England, to Glasgow Central and Edinburgh diverge. Constructed originally by the Caledonian Railway, the station is operated today by Abellio ScotRail and is also served by one First TransPennine Express trains service day between Preston and Glasgow Central. Carstairs was always an important junction station where northbound West Coast Main Line trains were split into separate portions for Glasgow, Edinburgh and, to a lesser extent, Stirling and Perth, Perthshire. and for the corresponding combining of southbound trains.
