Helensburgh Upper Station

IT HAS been reported — and subsequently denied — that Network Rail is considering closing Helensburgh Upper Station.

The station has been named as 'at risk' in a route utilisation strategy which sets out a vision of the future for rail passengers and Scotland's thousands of miles of track and railway stations.
