Railway plans of Scotland, 18th-20th centuries

Map Detail
Title: Plan and section of a proposed railway from the Garnkirk and Glasgow Railway to the Edinburgh and Glasgow Union Canal, near Falkirk, n.d. (marked copy, coloured). Printed.  
Imprint: n.d. ca. 1830s
Pagination: 1 map ; 47 x 149 cm.
Shelfmark: Acc.10706 No.436
Notes: The Garnkirk and Glasgow Railway was incorporated in 1831, and changed its name to the Glasgow, Garnkirk and Coatbridge Railway in 1844. However, the absence of any other railways (or even intended railways) confirms that this plan must be prior to the early 1840s, by which time the Caledonian Railway itself was being planned.
