Dawsholm Gas Works (1872-1964)
Served by the Glasgow Central Railway.
Also known as Gas Works No 2, Glasgow Corporation.
This gas works was enclosed between the Forth and Clyde Canal, to the south, Stobcross Railway, to the west, and the River Kelvin, to the east.
The works was served by sidings from the Stobcross Railway which led to exchange sidings used by reversal, a connection to the Glasgow Central Railway over the River Kelvin and under the canal, and by a rail served quayside on the canal (this crossed Skaethorn Road by a plate girder bridge). There was a single road locomotive shed by the Stobcross Railway.
A tunnel connected the works to the Anniesland Gas Works. This passed under the canal.
Most of the site is now housing. The boundary walls of the site and some office buildings remained intact until the late 1980s.
The site of the exchange sidings alongside the Stobcross Railway is now part of the Kelvindale station site.
