In pictures: Glasgow Subway shows off its new driverless trains [Railway Technology]

Date: 12/08/2019

The Glasgow Subway opened for the first time in December 1896, making it the third-oldest underground metro system in the world, behind only the London Underground and Budapest Metro. With its circular route and distinctive orange livery, Glasgows underground system has been playfully nicknamed the Clockwork Orange by the media, after Anthony Burgesss 1962 satirical novel of the same name. The 15-station, 10.5km metro loop plays an important role in the economic and cultural life of the city, recording 12.7 million journeys in 2017/18.
