History

Opened in 1842 the line was built by the Edinburgh and Glasgow Railway. Initially it ran from Glasgow to Haymarket and was extended to Edinburgh General in 1846. The line was absorbed by the North British Railway in 1865, became part of the L.N.E.R. at the grouping in 1923 and British Railways in 1948. When built the 46 mile line cost £1.2 million pounds.


Geography

The line runs to the North of Monklands District and the M8 motorway and approaches Edinburgh from the West and Glasgow from the North East. At places both the Forth and Clyde and Union Canals run parallel to the railway.



The Route

On leaving Edinburgh Waverley the first station is Haymarket. Departing Haymarket the Traction Maintenance Depot is on the right hand side with Murrayfield Stadium nearby. Next is Edinburgh Park, a modern station built to service the financial sector located in the Gyle District. Linlithgow is a place of great historical interest (Mary Queen of Scots was born in the Palace in 1542).

Next in order are Polmont, Falkirk High, Croy, Lenzie and Bishopbriggs. After Bishopbriggs look out for Eastfield

Depot on the left hand side before commencing a cautious decent of Cowlairs Bank and entry into

Glasgow Queen Street Station.
