::): no, they've gone home and taken their scaffolding with them. They worked evenings when they were painting down there too.

There was a letter came through my door a month or so ago informing us of a change to the entrance which required planning permission. I think they're just extending the part I photographed.

Yeah, SPT should extend the door right to the street, and get rid of that grotty wee passage.

Keep us posted Ally :-)


Re that museum vid, If it's the same one i'm thinking about (the one jointly made by Glasgow & Strathclyde unis), there were a few copies for sale in the museum shop, but last I looked they were sold out.

Went along to Kinning Park station today, i've actually never seen the above ground bit before.
Is SPT trying to keep it a secret or something, I had to break out my AtoZ, and even with that it still took some finding. I didn't see a single sign pointing to it, and I thought West Street was hidden away
