Blantyre Station looking west in 1961. You can see the bridge in the background spanning the railway at Station Road. On the northern side, the goods shed still visible in the background. The former brick built station offices are on BOTH sides of the platform.
However, perhaps the most noticeable difference is the lack of overhead lines. This was a full 13 years before electrification of the line. Do you remember when the station was like this?

Blantyre Project one of the adjacent station buildings burned down in 1968. I think i have a photo of it on fire. Not sure if the roof was replaced or they knocked it down afterwards.
