Name and dates

Clyde Trust Siding Signal Box (1896-1907)

Opened on the Lanarkshire and Dumbartonshire Railway.


Description

This short lived signal box was west of Dalmuir Riverside. It controlled access to the Clyde Trust's Dalmuir Dredger Works, the west end of Beardmore's Dalmuir Naval Construction Yard, and the Dalmuir Sewage Purification Works. These were on the south side of the main line and on the north bank of the River Clyde.

The box closed in 1907 and the connection to the main line taken out, but the long siding running east to the east end of Dalmuir Riverside remained in place and continued to give access to the works.

(There was also a Clyde Trust Siding on the Glasgow and Renfrew District Railway.)
