Re: Buchanan Street Station (Not Subway)

Mikey

The railway you see there is the active Queen St line which crosses under the old Buchanan line at the old tunnel mouth on Canal St.

Re: Lost Football Grounds

Correct Dugald. The Albion was a dog track, not a dedicated football ground but was used as Rangers training ground until it was replaced by a car park to accommodate the expansion of Ibrox.

Re: Hunter street

That could be the old line down from High St to Bridgeton Central - wouldn't evidence of the old Gallowgate Central station on this line be around the vicinty as well?

Re: Mavis Valley

The 'Kirkiebus' no. 70 to Lennoxtown would go 'via Mavis Valley' even in the 1990s! What this meant was a detour off Kirkintilloch Rd, down Balmuildy Rd then back up Hilton Rd to rejoin Kirkintilloch Rd at the Eagle Lodge.

Re: earliest glasgow memories

Station opposite Maule Drive was Partick West

One of my earliest recollections was being on a train that crossed a bridge between two buildings. Thinking back, I'm sure it was the bridge at Glasgow Cross. When did trains stop going into St Enoch? This would have been mid-late 70s

Re: Sectarianism in modern Glasgow

Would also recommend Sectarianism in Scotland as it provides a lot of historical and statistical evidence on the issue in Glasgow.

Re: Google Earth - Overlays, Interesting Finds Etc

It's quite easy to start mapping the disused railway lines with the naked eye using google earth. Good place to start would be kirklee to maryhill?

Re: Glasgow’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The music venue mentioned in West George Street probably became either Talk of the Town or Peggy Sue's (or both) as these were in the building that went up in flames.

Other venues that no longer appear on gig listings include:

Glasgow Tech
College of Building & Printing
Strathclyde Uni
The Venue

Went to a party in the Yorkhill tunnel last summer. I know Shitdisco (a local band) have held parties there as well. Pics on their website of the candlelit entrance.
