Abstract:

The city of Glasgow, formerly one of the largest industrial centres in the world, was once responsible for building about one-quarter of the world's railway locomotives. This was complemented by a massive urban railway network: the second largest in the UK. However, the Beeching Report of 1963 inevitably took its toll on Glasgow. This book examines the changing face of Glasgow's railways ever since, starting with the period of rationalisation and industrial decline that followed. It also explores the revival enjoyed in the latter half of the twentieth century, with lines re-opened and mod.
