Explore the complexities of Glasgow commuting with Rivet Partners’ Suburban Glasgow Northwest route!
Formed in 1960 as an amalgamation of various Victorian-era railways in the Glasgow area, the current North Clyde Line runs from Edinburgh Waverley to Helensburgh Central, with branches to Springburn, Balloch and Milngavie. Originally home to the venerable Class 303, or "blue trains", the current iteration of the route showcases a wide variety of stock, including many specials - often steam hauled - heading for the West Highland Line.
West of Glasgow, the line splits just west of Partick, with one route taking a northerly course through the Glasgow suburbs of Anniesland and Knightswood, before merging with the southerly line in the Clydebank district of Dalmuir. The southerly course passes through the traditional industrial heartland of the Clyde Valley. After Clydebank the route becomes distinctly rural, before ending in the foothills of the Highlands at Helensburgh.
