Milton Jn signal box.

Post by Jim Summers »

According to the records, Milton Jn. box did not shut until 1971
Can explain explain why it was retained after the line to St. Rollox/Port Dundas was closed and also the section from there to Germiston Junction in November 1966, please?

Jim, until 1971 would it not have been a block post on the line used by the Springburn - Cumbernauld shuttles? When closed, I guess that the block section would have been extended from Sighthill East to Cardowan or Gartcosh (or somewhere like that). Could it have been the access to Glasgow Works?
