The Railway Station showing the Tennis and Bowling Greens. You can see the access to King George Street on the right of the picture. This with the Victorian footbridge made access to the sothbound platform a lot easier than it is now.
The date of the picture is unknown.

This was my place of employment in the 50's...it was a busy place then, even had a newsagent..my position there was as a porter. However, on Wednesday's I got to travel to Foulis station to refill the signal lamps. The station master at the time was Jimmy Graham, ticket agent was Roy Harmon, signalmen were Jimmy Dick, Jimmy Mackay, all fine people......what would be the reasoning for taking down the overpass bridge? I wonder....

The reason for the overpass bridge been taken down was: when kids got into one of the maintenance vehicles and ran it along the line, it had a crane on it and it hit the bridge. The bridge was damaged. It is a pity that happended as it was always there for folk to cross over to the station.
