Whifflet Upper

View west over the A725 roundabout at Whifflet from alongside Faraday Retail Park in the summer of 2006. The lattice girder bridge and truncated embankment once carried the Caledonian line on towards Ardrie, crossing the area on the left now occupied by the roundabout. The cut back branch, which latterly served the BSC's Imperial Tube Works, (52902), finally closed east of Rosehall Junction (37130) in 1990. The abandoned island platform of Whifflet Upper station still survives amongst the undergrowth (32680).
