  2. Twentieth update of the ongoing works at Glasgow Queen Street High Level station.

    The platform 1 extension is nearing completion - OHLE masts and trackwork are now in evidence.

    Work to demolish the buildings at the south and west sides of the station continues. Consort House has had 3/6 of its storeys removed, and the section of the Millennium Hotel extension which bridged the old Queen Street entrance is completely removed. The train shed roof can be seen again from George Square.

    The E & G services continue to be run with a mixture of short-formed diesel class 170s and a few electric 380 units due to delays with the new 385 units. STOP PRESS: Some Class 365 units will be used as a stop gap measure: the first coaches arrived by road to Springburn on 22nd April (after this update was filmed).

  3. Nineeenth update of the ongoing works at Glasgow Queen Street High Level station.

    Work to demolish the buildings at the south and west sides of the station is well under way. Consort House has had its top storey removed, and bitsof the Millennium Hotel extension have gone. The Dundas Street entrance has been moved further north, and access is now through where WH Smith used to be.

    The BIG story since the last update video is the revival of plans for an extension to Buchanan Galleries. This has meant the end of construction of the permanent staff buildings in the former car park area.

    It is understood that the steelwork, which is constructed from standard sized components, can be dismantled and reused. The work so far is reputed to have cost in the region of £5M.

    Meanwhile the E & G services are being run with a mixture of short-formed diesel class 170s and a few electric 380 units due to delays with the new 385 units.

    The current phase of work at Glasgow Queen Street started on 6th August 2017 (see egip.info/news/2017/07/next-phase-of-glasgow-queen-street-station-redevelopment-gets-underway for details) and will see many changes to the station buildings.

  4. The overbridge replacement at Station Road Shotts is one of the major tasks in the pre-electrification works on the line. The road is now closed for 11 months due to the complexity of the task which involves of diverting services on to a temporary pedestrian bridge as well as demolishing and replacing the existing bridge obove a live railway.
    The temporary bridge already has its foundations and is likely to be craned in to place on Saturday 18th September.

  5. Ninth update of the ongoing works at Glasgow Queen Street High level (more like 8½ really - just a quick visit). Inside the station, work is in progress on the south extensions on platforms 2 - 5. Outside, activity continues on the north platform extensions and near the new signal gantry on S & C and the platform 7 road.

    'Camera' work is definitely getting worse, must put more water in it.

    If you haven't seen it already, vimeo.com/168611431 (11'05") is the official video from Network Rail
    'Queen Street Tunnel Timelapse The First Fifty Days' - highly recommended. Also a must-see is vimeo.com/168967790
