Cardross Station726 viewsA picture of a mystery celebration at Cardross Station. The bunting and Union Jacks, the waiting horse drawn carriages — and one early car — and the finery of the people in suggests a very special occasion, perhaps the opening of part of the station, or troops returning from the First World War, or even a royal visit? However it is believed to be the arrival of guests attending a wedding. The station was opened on January 15 1858, the line was doubled in 1883, and the bridge was built the following year.
