Subway: Ancient

Subway: Ancient

 

The new Riverside Museum holds the collection previously seen in the Glasgow Transport Museum. The collection is very strong and full of interest though I thought that the old museum did justice to the collection rather better than the new which frankly is too small to house the collection adequately. They have a very fine range of old cars but they are suspended high in the air on an interior wall. I came away very disappointed and somewhat confused by the arrangement of the exhibits. The museum strikes me as an example of form over function.

Nevertheless there as some interesting displays, and this is an old car from the early days of the Glasgow subway system.
