THE next train approaching Stobcross Station will be… AA Land-Rover?

Do not adjust your set, this is a real photograph from our archives in 1966, when plans were afoot to turn disused railway lines in Glasgow into a route for cars.

The three gents on the platform do not look very convinced, as the Automobile Association patrol vehicle makes its way gingerly along the track.

Our report said it was “an experimental drive through tunnels on the disused low-level railway system between Maryhill and Bridgeton,” adding that the AA said afterwards the use of the system as a motor route would be “perfectly feasible.”

As a plan to solve congestion above ground, this was certainly novel – does anyone remember what happened? Get in touch with Times Past if you do.

Meanwhile, as the last of the summer sun fades from Glasgow, feast your eyes on this glorious scene from George Square in 1952.

These gardeners were making a beautiful job of looking after the Square’s pretty flowerbeds.

Interesting fact, history fans - do you know why there is no statue of King George III, the monarch after whom the civic Square is named?
