A Snowy Helensburgh Upper
During the Beast from the East snow storm, the train service was abandoned and as a result the snow had built up.

This picture shows Helensburgh Upper Railway Station during this storm after one snow plough train had been through but as you can see, the snow started building up again.
Helensburgh Upper railway station

Helensburgh Upper is the town's "other" railway station. It is located on Sinclair Street, about one kilometre up the steep hill from the main station in the town (Helensburgh Central) Link .

Opened on 7 August 1894 by the West Highland Railway Company, the station is located on the world famous West Highland Line and is in fact now the most southerly station on that route since Craigendoran lost its West Highland Line services. The station lost much of its character when the line was singled, the island platform converted to a single line and the buildings removed.

Services are infrequent, but include a service to and from London Euston by means of the Caledonian Sleeper service.
