The Anonymous Widower

An Idea for the Glasgow Edinburgh Railway

Writing these notes, which reflected some things I’d seen on my journey to Scotland, I realised that Scotland could do much better between Edinburgh and Glasgow. Or should it be Glasgow to Edinburgh?

They could create a large Parkway station with lots of parking on this line about half-way and call it something imaginative like Scotland Central.  It would be easy to get to either end and if major stadia like Murrayfield and Hampden Park had quick connections, it would make getting to Scotland’s twin capitals and their major events easier.

It would also make connections to the north via Stirling and Dunblane easier!

If it was in the right place for those coming from the south of Scotland, so this would be ideal for Kazakh Jock.

A Glaswegian suggested to me, that you close the three southern airports of Edinburgh, Glasgow and Prestwick and put one in near Scotland Central, as there’s not much there!

I’d love to be a fly-on-the-wall in the committee, which decided to do that!  Both Edinburgh and Glasgow would have different and irreconcilable views.
