You're totally right Alycidon, beg your pardon :) I have one of the original booklets, but I don't have it over here in Embra with me so I don't have the captions handy. I ended up picking the first likely photo off the net. The one you posted is one of the ones I was looking for. There's another ph...

Leverndale!

Haven't seen it since it was still messed up 4 years ago. What did they do to the hall attatched to the tower?

Remember something he was talking about last week about Pressed Steel and how they made either the entire thing or parts for the <pic of a 303> AFAIK the 303s were built entirely at Pressed Steel in Linwood. I think they also built some DMUs - the Class 117s which were mainly for darnsarf but ended...

I dont suppose you have access to any old Airwolf episodes do you? Or, old adverts? This one has some good scottish region stuff, including scottish adverts: http://www.tv-ark.org.uk/ Unfortunately it was down when I tried it tonight. It's a popular site though, so I doubt it'll be off for too long...

Re: Steaming into Glasgow

Thanks Jim.

Out of interest, when was the last time GQS saw a steam loco?

Typical they have it the same day as the 303 is due to be out working at Bo'ness! Dilemmas..

Any idea what the bank engine will be?

Cheers,

Yeah, Bangour is vast (the entire estate of Bangour is 960 acres). I've done most of it, and although it's a fascinating place the buildings are pretty empty and practically devoid of "stuff". I prefer places that have that "just stepped out" look. That's true. Wasn't Bangour used as a location for...

Cumberland St Station

Hi, I always remember this place from when I was a kid and I'd be taken in the car through Glasgow; we'd go underneath the huge blue girder bridges, and round at the freightliner terminal there would normally be a railfreight grey 37 sitting at the bufferstops. Are any parts of the station or the br...

Both tunnels originally merged just short of Exhibition Centre Station but I am not sure if part of the Yorkhill tunnel was excavated to form the trackbed of the Eastbound Argyle line from Kelvinahugh Junction to Exhibition Centre. This is something I've always wondered about. I knew that the Yorkh...

I really like these, particularly the first, second and fourth.

I think the background needs a bit more punch in the third one.

Brilliant atmosphere, the orange lighting looks bizarre in b&w.

It's not the most interesting building in the world, but worth a look if you're in the area.

I've uploaded some images of it to d.s, including some of the (far more interesting) adjoining Yorkhill railway tunnel:

Is the Notre Dame site in Dumbarton or elsewhere in the county. It's in Dumbarton itself, round the back of Westcliff near the shore. When I was a wee lad in the early 60's I used to hitch a lift on a milk van that did deliveries to a convent in Dumbarton called Notre Dame. Never saw the inside of ...
