Glasgow Central Station Tour Thursday 11th February
Trains, tunnels, tracks and tributes to troops were all part of the rich tapestry of our tour through the bowels of Glasgow Central Station hosted by our erudite guide, Paul Lyons. He had the ability to transform bland, white painted arches into a historical journey, proclaiming the crucial role that the station played since being built by Highlanders, from the clearances and Irish Navies prior to its grand opening in 1879.
We were led through passageways, along corridors, assembling at various junctures to be regaled by Paul with colourful accounts of amusing incidents and factual records from the past. A well deserved vote of thanks was given by President Douglas. And thereafter we all retired to the Glasgow Central Hotel for a refreshment and then onto Alston’s Bar & Beef for a wonderful dinner.
