Whiteinch Loop Sidings

During the summer of 1961, three Gresley V3 2-6-2Ts (67648 and two unidentified) wait in the carriage sidings next to Hyndland station for the start of the evening rush hour. Their trains will start at Partick and run eastbound through Queen St Low Level. Before electrification of the line, these services would have started from the now closed Hyndland terminus. The photograph was taken during the period when the ^blue train^ electric units had been suspended from service, to correct a major design fault. See image 37008 for another image of 67648 on Kipps shed.
