Good idea.

I can think of another one that doesn't leave the city boundaries. St Enoch to
Queen Street. St Enoch platfoms 1 or 2, northeast to Saltmarket Junction(?), up
through Bellgrove, turn left up the Springburn branch, through Springburn and
then turn left along the Cowlairs Chord into QS High Level.

Great map James...
I see it still has the Dalton Branches in Glenpark St
I sat in there as a kid and watched them cut up more than one old loco.

Left from there on more than one occasion...
Played there as a kid in and out of the carriages sneaking through them when the BTP appeared trying to outsmart them with a bloody good game of hide and seek.
Back in the days when you were more likely to leave with a good boot in the arse and a strong lecture on the nature of electricity than a court date.

I passed this not long ago (1st time in 20 odd years) i needed a part for my heating from a place in Orr st, bloody housing on the site.
We also played in the signal box that was there too when it was taken offline.... Still had Leccy and heating and a great wee place to take a burd

superb work guys. James - great map. I will be taking photographs of the abandoned and disused railways / tunnels within Glasgow (I have already) but will be getting new collections of photographs over the next few months. I will keep you all informed though of when I visit these fascinating 'what once were' railway lines / tunnels

Best Regards

Hi jono and welcome to urbanglasgow

If you are going to visit any disused tunnels, its not the best idea to make it public knowledge my friend

back to the OP

how about queen st., round the cowlairs chord, past springburn station, past sighthill goods, to join up to the caley line through st. rollox (pass) into buchanan st.?

or a 5 min. walk up the hill instead?
