    Glasgow's new Riverside Museum of Transport and Travel opened in the summer - at a cost of £74 million! 27 photos can be seen here:

    The biggest exhibit in the Riverside museum is South African Rlys 4-8-2 No 3007, built in Glasgow by North British in 1945. It was never displayed at Kelvin Hall as it was only repatriated in 2007. 17 photos of the final stage of its return by road to its birthplace can be seen here:
