Re: Loch Lomond Motorway

Well Done. You appear to have managed to get to result 4 when searching for "Lomond Motorway" on Google whilst simultaneously ignoring all the helpful links given to you thus far. I don't now if the properties to which you refer were part of the plans for the 'Maryhill Motorway', the 'Tro...

Re: Loch Lomond Motorway

Just found this from the Clydebank story. "There have been many attempts since the Second World War to rationalise Clydebank's transport network. In 1949 the Inglis Report pointed to geographical features in the Burgh that would hinder transport improvement. The main obstacles (literally!) were...

Loch Lomond Motorway

Can anyone help with information on a proposed Loch Lomond Motorway that never materialised. I've been searching the internet for signs that such a plan existed but I can't find anything. Only info I have is from my own sketchy childhood memories. I'm sure there was compulsory purchases made of some...

Getting back on topic (and away from personal slanging matches), wasn't there an accident at Clarkson (or is that the Newton one?) Not a railway accident, but a very nasty gas explosion in 1971 that smashed the shops beside the line to rubble, killing 22 & injuring many others in the process No...

So where is the next one then ? I've checked the what's on but it's not advertised there. Usually last friday of the month, once the mods have argued where to hold it ;) OK I'll look out for info on it then, I usually organise a first Friday of the month night out with some mates and the grief in t...

If you are planning on the latter, gonnie bring covers for your windows. If you dont, you will find a row of seats and a popcorn vendor ootside yer car for a night of entertainment for those that like that sort of thing. From what I've heard that particular popcorn vendor would do a bomb up at Mugd...

My school (newly built in 77 I think) had that too. I wonder what any new schools being built today would have instead. It was still a pretty good system though for the time - you could record yourself speaking and play it back. I imagined the modern classroom to be a bank of flat screen monitors b...

More disaster on the Subway today. Apparently, according to Big Bob Wylie of the SPT: ".... some people may have found walking through the tunnel an unpleasant experience." ..." Some HGers, of course, would have cut off their right hands to have been on that train...... Collegue of m...
