I was initially in a better position (without the crane in view) but just before the finale, everyone was moved behind a line - right behind the crane!

Note the wee radio-controlled helicopter in the picture. :D

After 3 days of waiting and watching I finally managed to get some pictures of the multicoloured flats - all this spare time - it definitely pays off being a teacher! Anyway - enjoy the pics. http://thumb9.webshots.com/t/59/59/8/8/65/2160808650068624189gymhin_th.jpg http://thumb9.webshots.com/t/57/5...

All this talk of reopening railway lines is very interesting but like most proposed ventures touted about they seem to be pipe dreams.

The Tennent's building was demolished. Initial rumours had it that it was going to be the site for one of these new "superschools". However, that piece of "taxi gossip" never came to fruition and now a B&Q warehouse sits there. Regarding Gartcosh, the steelworks was demolished...I think in the 8...
