Pity no-one answered the query about a Rouken Glen tram terminus.

There was a crossover at Speirsbridge just yards past the park going west. This was just before the track left the main road to run cross country parrallel to it right out to Barrhead. My tramway simulator is overdue for uploading to then et. Those that have the train sim programme called Auran trainz will have hours of driving. There are Glasgow trams - standards - Kilmarnock Bogies - Single decker 0 and the brilliant Cormonation. No lines have been missed and i even 9included a couple of lines closed before WW2. These are the short line round from the bottom of Victoria Rd along Queen's Crescent. The other ios longer and ran beyond Elderslie (cut back to there around 1934) and went out to johnstone. From there it was singled to kilbarchan village. This has been a project of massive proprtions and walking every mile ensured track is where it should be. Glasgow had the most extensive tramway outside London and i loved the thing to bits as a boy. I only hope my labour of love has done it justice.

Hi rj
I enjoyed the trip on the simulator.
The reason i asked the question about RG rd was i have a photo of my Da in his drivers uniform sitting in front a house in Rouken glen rd (Nitshill thread) and just wondered if he was on a break at a terminus there. Thanks to other members i found the exact location of this house.
I posted on the same forum about the tracks that were still under Parkhouse rd. I saw them as a kid when they dug the road up.
There was also a section running up the side of the old fire station between the hedge & the pavement that was tarmac'd. I think this may have been the old tram route.

While since i have been here and could not recall where I put more information on my Glasgow tramway simulator effort. Anyway will breathe some more light for anyone not knowing!

I used a railway simulator programme called Trainz and intended to buiold just the west of the city where I was born and have always lived but then kept adding boards to extend into the city centre. Mysed then thought would add the north as less lines but then got niggled which pushed me to do the east north of the Clyde. Over a long time some two years everything north of the river from Dalmuir and Duntocher to Airdrie, etc was done. But then thought to myself "enough is enough." But again having the Clyde in and the bridges over it with tram tracks going over and stopping thought whether to do a wee bit more beyond the river. Si it kep growing south, south east, south west to evrywhere a tramling once existed.

Got someone to buld the trams - standard - Kilmarnock bogie - single decker, Coronation - Cunarder. You can drive the trams if have more in play can hop from one driver position to another as I can do in trains. Recently I went over the whole thing sorting out wee problems with traffic running on the streets and the odd track zilch. Only 2 folk have a copy. One was a man from Duntocher who could not believe his luck. He phoned and drove down from Duntocher with a portable HD to copy the project. Then a man from Belfast who loved trams and trolleybuses sent a dongle over for a copy!  As I have been busy building the whole of NIRailways in Ulster and the cross border route to Dublin it is time I got the dashedthing uploaded to the NET.

However there is a big BUT people must own N3V Trainz simulator to be able to use it! There have been those who have been surprised that anyone could actually build the who system which was well over a hundred miles but I was stubborn but one big disappointment. One year I left information in the Glasgow Transport Museum and all I got was a damn postcard acknowledging my  suggestion they might want it. Think I might try again but not too ambitious.  For those with a good graphics pc there might be  a way to get this  but will not broadcast it as the alternative as I say is to get the Trainz Simulator.One man once told me I would never manage to do the whole thing but I did including the lines closed before WW2 to Johnstone and Kilbarchan. Thought would repeat what I typed years ago and let more know of my giant work.

So have a look at my site.....
