Perth Glasgow Road

Opened on the Scottish Midland Junction Railway.

Description

Also known as Perth North Ticket Platform (and variations of this name). This was Perth General^s northern ticket platform where passengers tickets, for trains arriving from the north, were checked. It was a timber platform built on the east side of the line.

To the west of the platform, and over the main line and goods line, was the Highland Railway^s Perth Shed [HR]. To the east, ^behind^ the platform were the sidings of the Earlsdyke Coal Depot (probable site of the Perth Glasgow Road [Temporary] terminus).

Although the platform is long gone the blocked off steps descending from Glasgow Road can still be seen.

This location was severely flooded in July 1916, the floodwater covering the main tracks and partly the goods lines.
