Pictured here drawn in 1982 by A Lindsay, is a sketch of 1950’s High Blantyre Railway. The sketch incorporates the bridge in the foreground at Craigmuir Road and the railway heading round to the bridge at Sydes Brae.
It may be that the artist felt the need to record this memory, for during those early 1980’s, the East Kilbride Expressway was being constructed through this whole area, changing that scene completely.
The signal post locations and the branch lines leading off to Dixons Collieries are shown.
Thanks to Robert Stewart for this information.
