Botanic Gardens Station, Great Western Rd, built c. 1894 for the Glasgow Central Rly. by James Miller, architect. An unusual and attractive station, with the platforms and waiting rooms underground. The booking office was in a red brick building with a steeply pitched roof having two towers with galleries, surmounted by gilded onion domes. The centre portion of the frontage was a verandah, and there were end pavilions. Destroyed by fire in 1970.
