Temple / Netherton

Does anyone know what the fate of these buildings in Boclair Street & Netherton Road might be? They look in perfect condition from the outside but I don't recall any work being done on them recently.

Pretty sure they are scheduled for Demo ... New Social housing to replace ...

yeah they're for the bulldozer. Tambowie St has already gone. Think they're being replaced with semis or terraces

I dont remember them but then, I wasn't in that area when there were railway
lines around there. Would it have been were the goods line is shown in this map
looping around towards Glencoe Street?

The location of the bridge over Fulton Street is still very visable on one side where the street dips

Google streetview

If you zoom out, you can quite easily see the path of the line curving back round towards Anniesland

you can still see the remains of the bridge across the road from the Signal Bar on Fulton Street, and there was another branch that passed under the road further along, towards where the community centre is.

Didn't I just say that?

Rough location of both lines in Temple.

Not entirely sure where either end finished, but presumably both lines served works on or about the canal.  Once the line gets to Bearsden Road, however, not sure where it went.

Temple Railway

It used to take a spur from the northbound line out of Anniesland towards Westerton just before what is now the Lock 27.  If you look closely enough you can still see the tunnel under Bearsden Road (or what's left of it)
