His Ebay listings read like a sticky fingered mechanics diary.

Was there not a member on here who was a bit light fingered with the bussy stuff

Subway wont re-open on time:-

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-36858731

The Glasgow subway modernisation works will not be completed on time.

Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) has confirmed to the BBC that the contractor Colas Rail, which is working on the renewal works, will need extra time to complete the project. The subway had been suspended from 2 July and was due to reopen on 1 August.

SPT is now is now trying to confirm when the system will be functioning again, but it is thought the work could take a further two weeks. The subway operator said it has taken the contractor longer than expected to replace concrete in the tunnels, and work has been delayed by heavy rain in the past few weeks which flooded some areas.

If works overrun by a fortnight then the subway will have been closed for a total of six weeks. The Scottish Premiership season kicks off on Saturday, August 6. The World Pipe Band Championships are being held in the city on Saturday, 13 August, while pupils are due back at school in Glasgow two days after that.

Eric Stewart, SPT Assistant Chief Executive of Operations, said: "This is the most significant engineering aspect of the whole modernisation programme which is being built to last for another 40 years. This is a regrettable position and we are working with the contractor to pull back some of this lost time, as we endeavour to minimise any further disruption to our passengers.

"We apologise to all our passengers for this inconvenience."

This is the start of a gallery which will expand in the coming days. I'm working on the project as well as taking official photographs for Colas Rail and a few other railway clients. I have been in the tunnel on the outer circle from Cowcaddens to Buchanan Street today taking photographs of concrete renewals, which is something that has been completed on time. The ramps and turnouts renewals project has had it's problems but I am no position to further comment or have my say. I'll update you all when I have updated this gallery.

Hi Macman, thanks for posting
Where does the underground line appear on leaving the tunnels?

The line surfaces at Broomloan Road at Orkney Street then runs in to Broomloan Depot:

Glasgow Subway reopens after works delay ( BBC)



Glasgow's Subway system has reopened - more than a week later than planned following a month-long
closure for modernisation works.


The first inner circle trains departed St Enoch and Ibrox at 06:32. Services were suspended on 2 July and
had been due to reopen on 1 August. Subway operator Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) apologised
for the delay which was caused by flooding and the work taking longer than expected.

SPT Chief Executive Gordon Maclennan said: "The Subway is a vital part of the Glasgow transport network
and many passengers rely on it daily to get around. We are very grateful for their patience and support while
the works have been on-going. There has been a mammoth effort by our team for the return to service including
an exhaustive testing and clean-up operation of our entire system to ensure we provide passengers with a safe
and reliable service."

The closure enabled essential renewal work in the ramps and turnouts section of the tunnels where the trains
enter and exit the Subway system. Other work included completion of the Subway station improvements at
Buchanan Street and Govan.
