Clydebank to Dalmuir (North British Railway)

Introduction

This line provided a second route west from Glasgow Queen Street Low Level by extending from Clydebank to Dalmuir.

For further convenience a curve was put in at Jordanhill to allow a train from the Maryhill direction to run west, giving access to shipyards and docks in the process.

A section of the Forth and Clyde Canal was realigned to the south near Dalmuir for the construction, where the line passes below.
