If you’re a certain age, you may recognise the abandoned High Blantyre Train Station, pictured here in 1956. Looking southwards towards Sydes Brae ,the station is now a modern housing estate beside High Blantyre Old Parish Church, just out the picture to the left.
I liked the VIROL advert on the left. VIROL forced fed to kids to make them “healthy”! (Was that not processed beef and eggs?!). This was the beginning of the end for the station which fell into rapid decline through becoming overgrown and due to vandalism in the subsequent years.
