UK: The Glasgow Subway/Underground, Scotland ("The Clockwork Orange") [01:21]
UK: A collection of clips recorded on the Glasgow Subway. The system is also known as "The Clockwork Orange" because of the colour of the cars and the fact that it comprises just one, circular, route. Recorded 8th May 2003. 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. The system is not the oldest underground railway in Glasgow; that distinction belongs to a 5 km (3.1 mi) section of the Glasgow City and District Railway opened in 1863, now part of the North Clyde Line of the suburban railway network, which runs in a sub ...
16:30 Euston to Glasgow:Pendolino - September 2012 [24:46]
Stopping only at Preston, the 16::30 from London Euston to Glasgow Central is the fastest service between London and Scotland on the West Coast Main Line and the fastest northbound service between London and Scotland on any line, timed at 4 hours 8 minutes. On the day this was filmed - Monday 24th September 2012 - the service was severely delayed due to flooding across the network, with speed restrictions for much of the journey, making the train 20 minutes late arriving into Preston; held at Preston for a further 12 minutes; then a further one-hour delay near Penrith, meaning that, instead of the scheduled arrival time into Glasgow of 20::38, it finally pulled in at 22::00. The film shows the train passing through stations such as: Rugby; Crewe; Warrington Bank Quay; Lancaster and, later on, passing slowly through Carlisle (this is the only daytime service not to stop at Carlisle). Journey made aboard Virgin Pendolino 390 001, in 1st class. Filmed in full HD; 1080p.
