Cadder Yard is the railway yard situated between Bishopbriggs and Lenzie on the Edinburgh and Glasgow Railway (E&G). Cadder is a district of the town of Bishopbriggs. It was a hump shunting yard built by the North British Railway (NBR) in October 1901 as part of the Sighthill Goods Yard and High Street Goods Yard modernisation scheme. In the early days the majority of the railway workings were on the north side of the E&G, i.e., the up-yard. The hump was located to the North-West. With the modern changes of emphasis in British Rail freight almost all of the rail workings on the north side and signal boxes were removed in the 1970s and 1980s.

  • Cadder Yard is the railway yard situated between Bishopbriggs and Lenzie on the Edinburgh and Glasgow Railway (E&G). Cadder is a district of the town of Bishopbriggs. It was a hump shunting yard built by the North British Railway (NBR) in October 1901 as part of the Sighthill Goods Yard and High Street Goods Yard modernisation scheme. In the early days the majority of the railway workings were on the north side of the E&G, i.e., the up-yard. The hump was located to the North-West. With the modern changes of emphasis in British Rail freight almost all of the rail workings on the north side and signal boxes were removed in the 1970s and 1980s. The passing loops on either side of the main line have been retained and are used on a daily basis. The north side, beyond the up-loop, is a large Green Link tree-planting project. On the south side, beyond the down-loops, are maintenance sidings. Direct Rail Services (DRS) leased the site from July 2006 - May 2011 where it was used as awagon maintenance and storage location. Subsequently, DRS opted to move these operations to Motherwell TMD. This move might have been due to the lack of covered facilities, or to the EGIP construction plans. Cadder Down Yard is the current (2016) site for the EGIP electrification construction depot "subject to satisfactory negotiations with the current rail industry tenant to relocate their rail activities to another location in the West of Scotland." Westerhill, at the far west end of Cadder Yard is the proposed site for a railway park and ride service in Bishopbriggs in a campaign by local councillors.
