Heading home

Posted by Jackie on July 29, 2008

This is a Glasgow view I really like. The platform at Central Station, looking south. I know once I see this I’m not far from home 🙂

    in spite of the fact that I travel almost every day by train, I still like this view 🙂

  2. Sometimes look up – the roof is fantastic as well.

    I like stations; this is a beautiful one, looking old-fashioned. and it’s a wonderful feeling, being home again.

    I love the sense of traveling through time.

    the trellis work (is that the right term?) is beautiful and the signals up ahead add such a sweet dash of color!

    This is a nice station. It looks like a step back in time.

    I tend to forget what a train station looks like living here, that and motorways. Your thoughts on the image represents home were very apt.

    I too like that place, after a visit to Glasgow of one week. Could you make it a Central Station series, or you already have in older posts?

    This is a gorgeous photo. It reminds me of my travels in Great Britain several years ago. I look back on that time with fondness. Thanks for sharing your world with us. I’ll be back, for sure.

  9. I dont miss going home by train! The problem is that i read muck less.

    I’m a recently arrived newcomer to Strathbungo and the south side. Only recently discovered how much cheaper the train is compared to the buses… Glasgow is very lucky to have kept such a well served suburban rail network. Although the trains I use are only half-hourly, I don’t mind getting to Central Station early – it’s a fine place to sit and wait, people watching and enjoying how, regardless of the weather outside, the sun always seems bright under that massive steel and glass roof.
