    Hey everyone
    I've been wondering what was up there (you know the half derelict railway bridge that crosses the Clyde close to the Nautical College and the old fish market and goes on untill the ruins of caledonia road church) that railway as its fair share of derelit tracks and stations.
    The fact that it's lying 4meters above the streets doesn't prevent it from being a wee wood now.

    I found an almost extensive history of the gorbals rail system on scotcities a goldmine

    but however interesting the history, not much is to be seen for Southside station (opened 1848 closed 1879) , gorbals station (1877-1928) and main street station.
    The most recent one, Cumberland street is still standing (it was in use from 1900 till 1966)

    I was too anxious to see it with my own eyes so I finally made up my mind to take the risk and trespass on live railway (at some points the disused and live tracks are side by side, waited till sunday to avoid trains and shops being opened right beside the access point and there I was.

    1. From the outside (notice the part of the bridge that isn't supported, it was the platform of the station (the only piece of platform left)

    2. gives an idea how overgrown the tracks are



    5. Access to the tracks from the station (only stairs more or less in place)

    6.state of the other access stairs...

    7.corridor linking the stairs

    8.Inside the station



    11. pieces of stairs from below


    On the whole it wasn't such an incredible place to visit, but the building still has stuff to show and my curiosity is now satisfied :]

    thanks for looking
