Baillieston 1st railway station (site), Glasgow
Baillieston 1st railway station (site), Glasgow
Around 500m ahead of the train is the site of the first Baillieston station. Opened in 1866 by the Rutherglen and Coatbridge Railway, later part of the Caledonian Railway empire, this station closed in 1964. View north east towards Bargeddie and Whifflet. The site is now lost under a new housing estate and..... quite a lot of greenery.
When the line was reopened to passengers in 1993 as part of the Glasgow to Whifflet line, the replacement Baillieston station was located just behind the camera position.
