Glasgow Central Station Extension (Caledonian Railway)

Introduction

Glasgow Central was extended to the west in 1904 for which a new bridge over the Clyde was built (Clyde Viaduct [Glasgow Central]).




Portions of line and locations

This line is divided into a number of portions.


Bridge Street Junction (South) to Bridge Street



This was a large terminus in Glasgow on the South bank of the River Clyde. No part of the original station remains but portions of its later extension remain on Bridge Street. It was replaced by Glasgow Central, just to the north over the River Clyde.
