Former Kelvinbridge Railway Station

Former Kelvinbridge Railway Station


Glasgow, United Kingdom (GB)
Kelvinbridge Station was a station on the Glasgow Caledonian Railway in Scotland. The station opened 10th August 1896, its passenger services closed 15th June 1952, its good services closed 6th July 1964 and the railway offcially closed 5th October 1964. The station building was destroyed by a fire in 1968.

What's left today:
The station building was destroyed by a fire in 1968, but the foundations and lower walls still remain today. Next to the station building you can still clearly see where the footsteps down to the platforms were once located as it has been bricked at street level. At track level nothing remains, but next to the location of where the platforms would've been, you can still see the bricked tunnel portal - this tunnel would have once taken trains into the Botanic Gardens Station (now closed).
