Like Polmadie, St Enoch is synonomus with Glasgow.
The Glasgow Subway Company had its headquarters at St Enoch and fortunately the building survives.

Circa 1895 map of St Enoch and the approaches. The whole layout was on a raised level, even the Engine Shed was on stilts.

Nothing of worth I can say about this shot, and I was not sure if I should include it
as the fate of St Enoch will be well known to most enthusiasts and Glaswegians alike.

The southern approaches to St Enoch.

Approach viaduct to St Enoch from the south accross Bridgegate, the near
three arches would have carried the running lines and the rest would have mostly

The maze of lines around High St circa 1895, then named College. The line from St Enoch/City Union Bridge comes in bottom left, the route from Bridgeton
Central bottom right the still extant line to Bellgrove middle right and the line to Queens St top left. . The line from Bridgeton splits at Gallowgate Junction and heads into
Gallowgate Tunnel which runs under the centre of the map and joins the High St line just west of the platforms (Marked, Junction), this route is still very visible today. The left
hand branch from Gallowagte Junction (Marked, Bridgeton Cross Connecting) goes into Barrack St Tunnel and joins the St Enoch line a little way east of Gallowgate Station,
the western portal of Barrack St has long disappeared and the eastern portal has now been blocked, the area above the tunnel marked 'The Butts' was a goods yard after this map
date and is now a Morrisons, although the bridge in the top right corner under Barrack St survives.

The rather military like High St Station.
