Chapter 226 – Glasgow’s New Artery

Our tram traverses the Clutha, with its usual hive of activity as Scotland’s busiest waterway. On top of an open-top tram smoothly gliding along new rails, the views up the river are an absolute pleasure.

“This tramway is genius, linking Glasgow’s West End with the two central stations in the city, Caledonian Railway Station in Cowcaddens, and North British Railway Station on George Street, and once over the river, links the south stations, Bridge Street, and Caledonian Southside on Pollokshaws Road, finishing at Eglinton Toll.”, I said.

“You will be able to go anywhere in Scotland. Everything connects by rail and tram.”, said Robert MacLeod.

“More importantly, you can arrive from anywhere in Scotland and easily travel across the city.”, said James Mackenzie.

“One penny per mile, with halfway being Union Street.”, continued Robert.

Goosebumps ran through my body. As if the future of Glasgow was unravelling in front of me, with the vast opportunities now available from this new artery, linking the four corners of Glasgow with relative ease, comfort and cost.

“David Wotherspoon and I are discussing our challenge match with mighty England. This new tram system provides ground options for the whole city.”, I said.

“Now there’s an exciting fixture for the city to enjoy.”, said Alexander Campbell.

I half-heard Alexander, “And now I have a plan.”
