One terminal deals with all flights, although the recent addition of Terminal 2 provides a separate area for budget airlines.
The facilities at Glasgow Airport (GLA) are very well laid out and cater to the needs of all passengers, with money changers and ATMs, excellent shopping and dining, good business services, modern facilities for disabled passengers and fun areas for children.
Glasgow Airport (GLA) comes with helpful and informative staff, with numerous security, medical, porter and information staff ready to assist.
Shopping facilities at Glasgow Airport (GLA) are mainly located on the first floor, although there are shops dotted around the airport building. You will find ATMs located throughout the terminal building, both in Arrivals and Departures, downstairs and upstairs, and there are also bureaux de change and postal facilities at the airport. Facilities for the disabled at Glasgow Airport (GLA) are also very good, with an induction loop and mini-loop system, wide aisles, adapted toilet facilities, lowered telephones, text pay phone, free wheelchair assistance and yellow signage for those with visual impairment. Glasgow Train StationsThere are lots of active and possibly a few disused train stations dotted about Glasgow.
As an interesting aside, Bellgrove station boasts the only SPAD Indicator signal on the entire network due to the crash here in 1989. It cannot be seen here but is just beyond the signal at danger in the background (passed the red bridge) which protects the junction to Springburn.
I`m guessing the station buildings are in the middle of the pic and your looking back from towards paisley with Cairnhill Drive on your right ? Had a rummage through photos and there are better ones of Crookston station.Will post them later. Fjord,they would have probably done it sooner if it hadn't been for the Ayr electrification,as it was used for diversionary purposes.

At the time it made sense as there was very little passenger patronage to justify it remaining open. More than likely they are ok,,sure there is an inspection shedule and ultrasonics done on the wall thickness and the like. They look well dodgy to me, metal is funny stuff I hear what your saying with the ultrasounds etc Kev coz that`s what closed the General Terminus Quay, the scans showed metal fatigue in the carrying beams. James, my understanding (which may be complete horlicks of course) is that Cumberland St Sta.
Here's a couple of past present aerial shots to compare how things were once laid out compared to what exists today. Steam train passing over Gorbals Street railway bridge as it passes by the site of the former Main St Station.
Same train but it has progressed slightly further along the line as it passes over the railway bridge at Surrey Street, the northern end of the street is now Stirlingfaulds Place. As for Cumberland Street Station it was a quite a large station well served by four platforms which stretched from Eglinton Street to Surrey Street. This station was opened in 1900 by the Glasgow & South Western Railway, though it was on the City of Glasgow Union Railway. The passenger services through this station ended in 1966, when St Enoch Station was closed, though this station had been closed some time earlier. Main Street Gorbals station was opened by CGU in 1872 and closed in 1900 by the Glasgow & South Western Railway, though it was on the City of Glasgow Union Railway.
The passenger services on this line ended in 1966, when St Enoch Station was closed, though this station had been closed some time earlier, and this entrance had not been used for many years.
They're probably just pissed that they don't have your unique collection at their disposal.


Was wanting to do some more,but the vegetation on the abandoned platform makes it almost inaccessible. Loving all of your Railway pics but your Charing Cross Station pic really brings back so many memories. I remember being on the platform there late in the 1950's, waiting for the train back to Drumchapel, and it was so dark and dank in the days of the Steam Trains. Can't do a capture of the location, but according to streetview on my version of Google earth it's still there!
This line that has a station now on the right hand side of Balmore rd, I cant ever remember a station being there when I lived in Milton. Anybody know what they're doing to the site of the abandonned North Glasgow Motorway at the moment? Its a new housing development for Port Dundas, I believe they are also re-instating a lost link in the canal. Freeway razing sets stage for $250 million in developmentThe Milwaukee Common Council approved a plan on June 15 for redeveloping a mile-long corridor on an edge of downtown where the blighting influence of the Park East Freeway has been eliminated. Second was the Mayor from Cleveland where they have achieved a city-wide regeneration success that has earned respect from many quarters.
Judging from the plans for the new eastend road there doesn't seem to be much opportunity for pedestrians to get from one side to the other either. This is the view eastwards along the IRR through Laurieston, "This elevated section of motorway will provide many new and exciting glimpses of the city skyline". I think that pic looks like a modified Buchanan St Station, with the Motorway running past it.
The plans for Glasgow remind me in a way of the vision put forward in the 30s film Metropolis. Is that not the "Glasgow North" station project from the 1950s, the drawings for which were posted by James73 in another Thread??
The airport Information Desk is situated on the first floor, next to the UK Departures area. You will find newsagents and bookshops, fashion and jewellery stores, genuine Scottish products and lots of duty-free merchandise in the Departures area. Business facilities are good, with telephone and fax facilities located on the first floor, while conference rooms can be found at the Glasgow Airport Business Centre, Renfrewshire Chamber of Commerce and Travel Inn.

It was mentioned by many a railwayman at the time that they would rue the day for such folly particularly when BR quickly sold off the land to a private developer near Elderslie thus nullifying any immediate chance of reopening the line towards Ayrshire.
Bearing in mind that this is one of the wealthiest suburbs outwith Glasgow and still is to this day.
Corrosion is the most common cause of those massive oil tankers breaking in half out at sea that you see sometimes on documentries. The loco is tender first so it may have been hauling empty coaches from St Enochs to Bellahouston carriage depot? The entrance was through an arch under the bridge, and the 'first floor' seen here was actually a screen wall round the southern west-bound platform. The platform buildings were demolished in 1969, and the screen wall seen here has since followed.

The visionaries across the pond in Boston thought that it would be a famously good idea long before the city fathers here.
Demolition of the freeway spur was completed about five months ago, bringing to fruition a longtime goal of John Norquist, who served as Milwaukee’s mayor from 1988 until January of this year, when he resigned to head the Congress for New Urbanism. One of his statistics was that when the local council decreed that extensive sections of the earthquake-damaged elevated freeway would not be rebuilt, the adjacent 'downtown' property values rocketed by around one third on the day of the announcement.


One of the main drivers (no pun intended) of this regeneration was the virtual abolition and large-scale demolition and removal of much of Cleveland's urban freeways and clearways. Popular shops at Glasgow Airport include World Duty Free, The Body Shop, Boots, Dorothy Perkins, Tie Rack and WH Smith. It served what was then the middle-class suburb of Gorbals, and was a convenient point to interchange with tram services to the south side of Glasgow. Rather confusingly, the railway line for both stations ran adjacent to what is now Cumberland Street.
The steel parapet and substructure of the main city-bound platform can be seen to the right, bracketed from the side of the bridge carrying the track. Where the elevated freeway stood on downtown’s northern edge, a ground-level six-lane boulevard, McKinley Avenue, has been constructed, adorned with trees and flower beds in its median and with granite pavers and more trees between the roadway and the sidewalks. The longer term outcome was a sustained regeneration of these previously motorway blighted neighbourhoods. I have major reservations regarding how the M74 works at Eglinton Toll as it appears we haven't learnt anything from the way the west end and north of the city is disconnected by the M8 over and underpasses. Cleveland sounds similiar to Glasgow in parts and there are examples of regeneration there but Milwaukee is most useful for how to tackle inner city expressways (though I doubt this would work for an M8 ). As well as Boston (whose Big Dig approach while having useful lessons for us is prohibitively expensive) its interesting to come across this in US based New Urban News 2003 archives concerning moves made in Milwaukee to rid their downtown of the blight caused by urban freeways. The boulevard provides an attractive new gateway to the downtown and is helping to attract redevelopment activity. Fairhurst's original document on how the resultant spaces beneath the overpass where to be treated is rather amusing in an ironic way.
Cartoon sketches of happy pensioners idling away their time in a landscape of sculpture and vegetation. Interestingly enough though the M74 document does have the integrity to state that amenity at Eglinton Toll will be damaged but the solution adopted: environmental art features and landscaping; sounds remarkable similiar in approach to the late 60's! The city’s RiverWalk, which runs along the river downtown, will be extended into the redevelopment area.Altogether, the redevelopment plan covers 64 acres.
Its design guidelines call for a distinctly urban environment, featuring buildings mostly 4 to 10 stories high, landmark buildings up to 20 stories, and rowhouses 3 stories high. I know we need this connection for economic growth but does it have to take the form of an elevated inner urban motorway? The plan “tries to put most of the buildings up to the sidewalk,” said Senior Urban Planner Allison Rozek.
After the plan’s adoption, developer Barry Mandel pledged the launch of a $100 million project that will replace a large tannery building with 500 condominium units and apartments overlooking the river. Other developers are expected to build offices, shops, entertainment, and additional housing in the redevelopment area.
Park, planning director under Norquist and now manager of planning and development for Denver, told a CNU session in Chicago that the project demonstrates “the need to think about transportation and development simultaneously.” The cost of demolishing the freeway, constructing the boulevard, and building the new bridge was estimated at $25 million, the bulk of it paid for by the federal ISTEA transportation program. That brought in more land and more than doubled the expected value of real estate development, according to the Department of City Development. That sum will be recovered through a tax-increment financing (TIF) district in the redevelopment area. Mayor Tom Barrett has requested that the plan’s land-use section be amended to bar new tax-exempt uses in the redevelopment area unless they’re approved by the Redevelopment Authority and the Council. Preventing tax-exempt development would ensure that the TIF district gets as much revenue as possible. Other land is owned by private owners, who have been in discussions about its development potential.
