I visited this site by chance with HorZa, one of those ones we never thought about seeing then we saw a blatent entrance on driving past and we had to go investigate. HorZa's report can be seen here.

The station was originally opened in 1900 as a replacement for Main Street station which was on the opposite side of the road and closed after the line was expanded. Cumberland Street was closed in 1966 after passenger services to St. Enoch's station were stopped. The station was originally called Eglinton Street, but its name was changed to Cumberland Street in the 1920s due to there being another station with the same name nearby.

There was talk of the station re-opening as part of the Glasgow Crossrail project but this project seems to be on hold with no further developments recently.

As always the shots are from a video I made which can be seen here:

Some of the brickwork was excellent and must have looked great in its heyday.

Alot of it was destroyed but hopefully the Glasgow crossrail project will finally begin and this station can be restored to it's former glory.
