Name and dates

St Vincent Crescent Signal Box (1897-1924)

Opened on the Glasgow Central Railway.


Description

This signal box was located between Stobcross, to the south, and Kelvinbridge stations. It was on concrete overline bracing in the very short section of open line between Stobcross Depot Tunnel, to the south, and St Vincent Crescent Tunnel to the north. To its immediate south, and in the open air, the line was crossed above by the Glasgow City and District Railway, both lines being in deep stone lined cutting.

The box closed in 1924, although the bracing remains

The line was out of use in 1960 and has not reopened.
