Wonderful Trains mural at Hyndland railway station

The underpass at Hyndland station is home to a 150ft long, 8ft high ceramic tile mural which depicts the wonderful world of trains as seen through the eyes of pupils and staff of Hyndland Secondary School.

Commissioned to mark Glasgow's reign of European City of Culture in 1990, the mural was funded by Network Rail Community Unit West Area Management Committee, Glasgow District Council and Strathclyde Regional Council.

Despite approaching 25 years of age, the mural is in good condition, with only a few sections having fallen victim to water staining.

The names of the many artists are included in the lower half of the mural.
