Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Glasgow Shields Road ETD is a railway Electric Traction Depot in Glasgow, Scotland. The depot is located on the south side of the Glasgow Central to Paisley lines, adjacent to Shields Junction, close to the site of the former Shields Road station. The depot's code is 'GW'. Although electrification of the suburban lines radiating out from Glasgow Central station commenced in the 1960s, no depot facilities were provided for the electric trains, and the Class 303 and 311 Electric Multiple Units used on these services had to be hauled to Hyndland EMU Depot for maintenance. With completion of the West Coast Main Line electrification to Glasgow in the 1970s, provision of a depot south of the River Clyde became essential, and Shields Road Electric Traction Depot was duly opened in 1975.show more
