Bowling Railway Station

Bowling Railway Station
Bowling railway station serves the village of Bowling in the West Dunbartonshire region of Scotland. This station is on the North Clyde Line, 12¼ miles (20 km) west of Glasgow Queen Street. The station is managed by Abellio ScotRail who also provide the train service. It was opened in 1858 by the Glasgow, Dumbarton and Helensburgh Railway, though Bowling had received its first railway several years earlier courtesy of the Caledonian and Dumbartonshire Junction Railway (whose Bowling Pier terminal linked into the steamer service along the River Clyde). The station was made famous by a 1960 painting by the renowned railway artist, the late Terence Cuneo, who depicted a then new Blue train (Class 303) heading westbound into Bowling, passing a steam engine, which the 303 had replaced, in a siding. The painting was used as a poster 'Glasgow Electric'. Quoted from Wikipedia

I remember that poster well, Tacheles, sometime in the 1960s. Did you see the wee moose? Thanks for your very kind comment. I hope you have a fantastic weekend. HFF and all the best, Joe

Joe, Son of the Rock club has replied to Tacheles club
If I told you, Tacheles, moose, is Scots for mouse, would that help? I can remember first spotting the wee moose in 1962, when this poster was displayed on the wall under the bridge at Dumbarton Central Station. All the best, Joe

Something new learnt. Little wonder the huge antlers did not appear within the painting.
Without your friendly help I'd surely overlooked that.
