Kinning Park Junction

Although the WD 2-8-0 is somewhat blurred, this picture shows some of the complexities around Glasgow's Shields Road station in July 1963. The loco is heading eastwards light engine on the low level lines through Kinning Park Junction, and about to enter the short tunnel underneath Shields Road. Platforms of Shields Road station can be glimpsed top left and right, for the Paisley Canal line on the left and for the Paisley Gilmour St line on the right. Tracks to General Terminus Quay diverge underneath the Gilmour St platforms.
