Craigton Industrial Estate

I came across this section of track in Craigton Industrial Estate just East of Cardonald station recently. 1936 OS map appears to show a biscuit works? (Does anyone know about the biscuit works, perhaps part of McDonalds Bakery?) The view looks west with the Glasgow-Paisley line behind the building to the right. The site became Howden's compressor works from 1947 until 2014. The trackwork was taken out of use around 1960, making this short section an unusual survivor. Access was from a reversing spur behind the camera, a siding from Cardonald station.
