Scope and Content Former Glebe Street Station, off Glebe Street, Townhead, Glasgow (City of Glasgow council area) This was the Glasgow terminus of the city's first locomotive-worked railway, The Garnkirk and Glasgow. It had facilities for passengers, but was mainly designed to handle coal, including trans-shipping it into canal barges. This view shows the lower part of the station in its last days, with the drained canal to the right. The lorries in the left background were in the coal depot, originally the place where coal coming in at the upper level was loaded into road carts. Glebe Street was used as a passenger station until the opening of Buchanan Street Station in 1849, but remained in use for freight until the mid 1960s, when it was closed to make way for motorway construction.
