St Enoch Locomotive Depot (1885-1930)
Opened on the City of Glasgow Union Railway.
This was a 12 road locomotive shed built in the triangle of lines Glasgow St Enoch Station - Clyde Junction [CGU] - Saltmarket Junction. Although the triangle of lines was useful for turning engines there was a turntable on the west side of the shed.
The shed was above street level and covered a large area. The duties of the shed were taken on by Corkerhill Depot (opened 1896) but the site remained in use as a locomotive stabling point and the shed itself was not demolished until the entire station site was cleared in the 1970s. The turntable had been removed after the original closure and lines in the east portion were already lifted by the 1960s.
The shed was noted for oil dropping down on passing pedestrians below.
