WHEELS Turning On Plan To Breathe New Life Into Old Glasgow Train Station

18 February, 2021 | Listed / Historic Buildings, Railway Structures

A PROJECT is underway to see if a historic Glasgow railway station that’s lain disused for decades can be redeveloped.

Architecture firm New Practice stated: “We’re excited to begin work exploring the development of Cumberland Street Station on behalf of Many Studios through support provided by Glasgow City Heritage Trust and Architectural Heritage Fund (Scotland).”

Glasgow-based Many Studios is a community interest company which operates a creative hub and arts space.

New Practice continued: “Cumberland Street Station is a…classical former train station in Glasgow’s Southside that is sadly sliding into dereliction.

“Today the building is empty, and in poor repair. It comprises of a simple, yet imposing building strikingly set on a corner site within the railway arches of the elevated railway and it is located within the major regeneration area of the Gorbals.

“We look forward to sharing progress over the coming months.”

The B-listed building was built around 1900 and was originally called Eglinton Street Station. It closed in February 1966 when services to St Enoch Station ended.
