St Rollox Railway Works, 130 Springburn Rd, originally built for the Caledonian Railway in 1856-7, but completely rebuilt in the 1880s under the direction of Dugald Drummond, to designs by Robert Dundas, engineer. The buildings are mainly single storey, with round-headed openings and circular ventilators in the gable ends, and are of red and white brick. The two storey and attic, 3 by 17 bay office block on Springburn Rd was built in 1887 (£3500).
