2nd of January HG Walk West End Railway Walk

Postby old jock » Sat Dec 26, 2015 10:07 am

So I did the first part last year

This Year I'll do the other (but better known) half, if anybody is interested.

Meet at Hillhead Underground 11:00 AM.

Main focus will be covering the West End Section of the Glasgow Central Line, from Maryhill into the town.

No tunnel walks or station visits as such, well you can if you want I'm most certainly not.

Pity HH haven't seen you in Yonks

Managed to find the notes buried in the depths of my steam powered laptop so all I need now is a quick reccie if this rain ever lets up

Cheers
