At the start of this thread there was some confusion about the actual location of Scotrail House. As a boy I lived oposite the site when they were building it.

Image

These houses where cleared to make way for the new building about late 1966. This is Port Dundas Roas even numbers oposite the junction of Airdrie Street.

Image

Scotrail House was build back from the road almost where the rail tracks would hve lead to Buchanan Street Railway Station.

As noted previously the station was a little further south of where Railtrack House is located.

As this photo includes my sister I was reluctant to post it but thought it was too good not to.

Does the taxi in the 'past' picture not look quite modern? Well, when I say modern I mean like the ones we see today.

It's an Austin FX4, which came out in late 1958. It has the original "ear" type indicators above the passenger doors.
They were built (with minor modifications) until 1997.

Sorry for the delay FC in replying to your question. Been busy over the Festive Season and my family banned me from using my Blackberry.

This is my oldest sister Christine.
