Shawlands

Shawlands station viewed from the bridge over the Barrhead line. The line here looks a little bumpy, but then this is pretty telephoto. I'd never noticed before that many Cathcart Circle stations are built like island platforms on single track railways - one face being straight and the other curved. Then again it is a circle with most stations on curves so I should have thought that through. See image 7511 for the same view, but considerably less telephoto, 24 years earlier. Building now gone, trains changed.
