Scope and Content Train at Queen Street Station, West George Street, Glasgow This view from the south-south-east was taken in 1986, and shows a type 37 diesel-electric locomotive, one of a class introduced in 1960. It has brought the coaches to form a West Highland Railway train into the station, and will help to push it up the Cowlairs Incline. This locomotive was one of a number of the class altered to work on the West Highland Railway. Also in this view is the overall roof built in 1880 by P & W MacLellan to designs by James Carsewell, which survived the 1960s rebuilding. Queen Street Station was opened in 1842 by the Edinburgh & Glasgow Railway, and rebuilt and extended by the North British Railway in 1878-80. It was rebuilt again by British Railways in the 1960s, retaining the overall roof of 1880. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
