Crookston

Corkerhill Jubilee 45677 Beatty with a Starlight Special passing Crookston on Sunday 1 July 1962. [Railscot note: The Starlight Specials were launched in 1953 to provide cheap overnight travel on summer weekends to London (usually Marylebone) and at their peak of popularity in 1960 a dozen or more were in operation. Most of the specials started from St Enoch although there were trains from Waverley, Gourock and even one for a time from Clydebank Riverside. The last Starlight Special ran in 1962, the year the photograph was taken.] see image 27077
