Glasgow Transport Museum

This museum may be unknown to many as it has only been open a couple of years. It is housed in a bright new building beside the Clyde about 10 minutes walk from Partick station. There is also good road access and a regular bus from the Scottish Exhibition Centre. Admission is free and the collection contains five steam locos with strong Scottish connections as well as a super collection of motor vehicles, trams, bikes and shipping models. Outside there is a tall ship to visit too. The catering is recommended and there is a well stocked shop. Most of the postcards are shipping related but the railway postcard collector will find a card featuring the only surviving Glasgow and South Western locomotive No.9 as well as some Star series poster cards and a card showing steam on Glenfinnan viaduct.
