Not sure which direction is faced in this photo, but is it, perhaps, the chimney at Gartnavel Hospital?

Does anyone have a photo of Crow Road Station in operation or derelict? Are there any photos of the ticket office building which would've been accessed from Clarence Drive?

Do any of the WAC Smith books detail this station?

From the most excellent book by W.A.C. Smith and Paul Anderson "An Illustrated History of Glasgow's Railways"

To mitigate my blatent disregard of copyright - go out and by this book, anyone who has an interest in the history of the railway system of Glasgow should have one.
There is also video of a DMU passing through the station on a commercially avaulable video, can't remember which though
