Cadder Yard [NAT]

OS 1:10,000 map, 1990.

Not to be confused with Glasgow, Millerston, Robroystron Marshalling Yard (centred NS 6418 6818), for which see NS66NW 363.

The provision of new and technologically advanced marshalling yards in Scotland was a major feature of the 1955 Modernisation Plan for British Railways, being intended to replace a far greater number of smaller yards of simpler design and more limited capacity. The five Scottish locations selected for construction or development were Thornton (NT29NE 14.00) in Fife, Millerhill (NT37SW 1127) in Lothian, Perth (NO12NW 104), Cadder (NS67SW 55) to the NE of Glasgow, and Mossend (NS76SW 159) in South Lanarkshire. In the event, Cadder continued in use in much its former state, serving the northern side of the Glasgow conurbation.

M Rhodes 1988.
