Historical Notes

Glasgow Historical Notes

The first railway in Glasgow was the Garnkirk and Glasgow Railway, built primarily to carry coal from the Monkland coalfields to Glasgow, but in 1831 the first passenger station, Glebe Street, Townhead, was opened just north of the city centre. This station closed to passengers when Buchanan Street Station opened in 1849.

On Glasgow's Southside, Bridge Street Station was opened in 1840 by the Glasgow and Paisley Joint Railway. It boasted a grand, two-storey booking office with a Doric portico. In 1889 a second building was built to replace the old one, but the station's fate was already sealed with the refurbishment and extension of Glasgow Central Station and an additional eight-track bridge over the Clyde. Bridge Street Station closed in 1905.
Springburn was a mecca for the locomotive industry with four important railway manufacturing sites, namely the St Rollox Works, Cowlairs Works, the Hyde Park Works and the Atlas Works, with St Rollox being the largest .

James Miller was a renowned Scottish architect known for the design of many railway station buildings. He is particularly famous for designing the beautiful Wemyss Bay Railway Station on the Clyde coast. While working for the Caledonian Railway he designed the following Glasgow station buildings - the second Bridge Street Station building, Botanic Gardens Station, Possil Station, and Kelvinbridge Station.
