On the first Satrurday on 2015, a trip to Glasgow was in order.
Arrival was at Glasgow Central where Virgin Train’s #Traindeer, aka Pendolino 390 112, named Virgin Star was sitting in Platform 1 prior to forming the 1200 to London Euston via Birmingham.
Under the windows of the #Traindeer there was a string of seighbells.
However under one window, there is a sleighbell missing
Heading out of Central Station via the Gordon Street entrance, turning left towards Buchanan Street. Where Gordon Street and Buchanan Street there used to be a branch of the Royal Bank of Scotland. When this was relocated in Gordon Street, the building became a branch of the bookshop chain Borders. The bookshop chain closed in December 2009 and the site changed again, this time become a branch of All Saints Spitalfields. The windows of the store feature columns constructed with manual sewing machines.
On the other side of Buchanan Street there was a violinist balancing on a “low wire”.
Heading north up Buchanan Street, the drums and pipes of Clanadonia could be heard.
Nearby a living statue was modelling the iconic Glasgow statue of the Duke of Wellington complete with the traditional traffic cone on his head.
At the north end of Buchanan Street is the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall and the statue of Donald Dewer, initial First Minster of Scotland.
