Description

This was the Eglinton Street Goods depot of the Glasgow and Paisley Joint Railway. It became the main parcels depot in Glasgow. Following this it was a permanent way base for First Engineering.

Access was from the west, from the Glasgow and Paisley Joint Railway.

This is a large and good example of a goods shed, modernised and re-roofed. It is currently out of use and rail-less.

The site is bounded by the Glasgow and Paisley Joint Railway to the west and north, the City of Glasgow Union Railway to the south and Salkeld Street to the east.
