Hi all  

I've only recently become aware of the St Enoch's station which used to exist.  After a good few drunken conversations with taxi drivers on my way home from nights out; I took my bike out yesterday and tried to get onto one of the old bits of track.

Here's a map showing where I got to:


I got quite far along and then encountered some serious overgrowth.  I'd love to get farther so I could get onto the rail line that looks to remain (according to google maps)

I didn't take many pictures but came across this site when I got home and started googling, so next time I go looking I'll get more.

This is for reference, showing the Greek Thomson church from the rail line.



And this is a picture of the wall of trees which stopped me getting further.



I noticed on another thread that possibly this would go on to meet up with a still in use line called the city union line?  Would that be right? (this picture was taken by james73)



Thanks guys and I really love this site

Hi Davie,

I've been right along through the undergrowth but I wouldn't recommend going right up to where it meets the track... it's a live line and you would be very liable for prosecution. The bridge by the Brazen head is probably about the furthest you can go and after that, you can be very exposed and spotted

I was driving past Cumberland St Station a few weeks back and noticed the local neds had ripped down some of the boarding near the entrance so took the opportunity to head inside for a few photos. This is the station opposite the Brazen Head.



Entered the above photo on a competition on Bing. Would really appreciate if anyone who likes it can vote for me a few times please! Link - http://competition.your-britain.com/hphoto.aspx?id=3323




My friend also took a video there as well if anyone is interested:

Great video - always wanted to see what the inside of the station and what's left of the platforms looked like - now I have!

I had a look at the youtube abandoned scotland pages and the video is fantastic in HD. Some other great videos of interesting sites too. The editing and music are superb.

Hi all i am new on here, This may not constitute as in Glasgow.

But i was wondering if anyone had any pictures of Dumbarton East Signal Box, it sat near the west side of the station and at the head of the line that ran towards the shed and goods yard? There is remains of the bricks that shows where it once was. I have searched near enough all of Google. I have done image and net searches, but to no avail can i find any, nope not a bean!

Has anyone noticed the old Eglington Street Station recently. They are painting a new "Welcome to Glasgow" mural on the old station wall. It is not quite finished yet but it does look good.

Just wondering how much tax payers money it is costing and how long will it be before the Glesca neds spray over it.
