Partick Hill station stairs (photo challenge...maybe)

Postby glasgowken » Fri Apr 21, 2006 6:53 pm

Does anyone have (or can anyone take) a picture through the wee bolt opening of the steel door across the Partick Hill station staircase ?

I saw it today, but didn't have my camera.

Yayy :D Well done.

I passed there on the bus yesterday, I almost got off to try and get a photo, but my camera might have not managed to poke through.

Yeah - it was a bit tricky, but it turned out better than I thought it would.

Outstanding.

I love this site.

I used to think it was just myself who walked around taking pics of obscure old places around glasgow.

I'm gonna check out the place in the above pic...'do my nosey like'

This staircase serves the old eastbound platform - and is adjacent to the old Woolies/Partick Market, now Poundland store

Stairs to the old westbound platform are within the florists property - all sealed off .

Partkihill station could also be accessed from Norval street via a ramp & staircase into the old brick ticket office., there was also a footbridge linking the two platforms and I think another subway at the northern end of the platforms (although that may have been staff only)

I used to live in Norval Street as a nipper and can remember the old station in use before the "New" Partick Interchange station was opened in the late 1970's
