The first three clips are at Partick station and the last one at Bridge Street station. +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+- The Glasgow Subway is an underground metro line in Glasgow, Scotland. Opened on 14December 1896, it is the third-oldest underground metro system in the world after the London Underground and the Athens Metro. Formerly a cable railway, the Subway was later electrified, but its twin circular lines were never expanded. The line was originally known as the Glasgow District Subway, but was later renamed Glasgow Subway Railway. It was so called when taken over by the Glasgow Corporation who renamed it the Glasgow Underground in 1936. Despite this rebranding, many Glaswegians resolutely continued to refer to the network as "the Subway". In 2003 the name "Subway" was officially readopted by its operator, the Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT). A £40000 study examining the feasibility of an expansion into the city's south side is in progress.

Walk To Meet Scottish Clydesdale Horses Fife Scotland [02:19]
Tour Scotland video of a wee walk up a farm road to meet some Scottish Clydesdale horses on visit to North Fife near St Andrews. The Clydesdale is a breed of draught horse derived from the farm horses of Clydesdale, Scotland, and named after that region. The breed was developed from Flemish stallions imported to Scotland and crossed with local mares. The first recorded use of the name "Clydesdale" for the breed was in 1826, and by 1830 a system of hiring stallions had begun that resulted in the spread of Clydesdale horses throughout Scotland and into northern England. The first breed registry was formed in 1877. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, thousands of Clydesdales were exported from Scotland and sent throughout the world, including to Australia and New Zealand, where they became known as " the breed that built Australia ".
