Port Glasgow railway station murals

The stunning and atmospheric murals were suggested by the Port Glasgow Town Centre Regeneration Forum as a way to brighten up the appearance of the town's railway station.

Funding was provided by local Regeneration company Riverside Inverclyde LinkExternal link and Scotrail's Culture and Arts Fund LinkExternal link .

The 14 individual panels are classed as a single 56 feet long work, by artists Karen Orr and Jim Strachan from the local community organisation RIG Arts LinkExternal link , in collaboration with members of the Old Men's Club, Port Glasgow Community Council and pupils of St John's Primary School

Each of the 14 panels depicts an aspect of the town's culture and history, including industry, the railways, sport and Newark Castle, cleverly blending the past with the present.
