Sta­tion makes top 100 list

Strathearn Herald - - HERALD VIEWS -

Roseanna Cun­ning­ham MSP, Mem­ber of the Scot­tish Par­lia­ment for Perthshire South and Kin­ross-shire, has con­grat­u­lated all those re­spon­si­ble for see­ing Gle­nea­gles Sta­tion in her con­stituency in­cluded in a list of the 100 best rail­way sta­tions in Bri­tain.

The list has been pro­duced by Si­mon Jenk­ins, au­thor and founder of the Rail­way Her­itage Trust, whose new book, Bri­tain’s 100 Best Rail­way Sta­tions, has just been pub­lished.

Ms Cun­ning­ham said: “Well done to ev­ery­one who has con­trib­uted to help­ing Gle­nea­gles make this list of the top 100 rail­way sta­tions in Bri­tain.

“To make the top 100 out of more than 2,500 oth­ers re­ally does take com­mit­ment and ded­i­ca­tion and I am pleased to add my praise to the recog­ni­tion that in­clu­sion on this list brings.

“Perth Sta­tion is just out­side my con­stituency - in­deed the rail­way line forms the bound­ary but I am de­lighted to see that it too has made the list.

“Along with Ran­noch and Pit­lochry that means that 40% of the Scot­tish sta­tions in the top 100 are from the Perth and Kin­ross area, a fig­ure that un­der­lines how won­der­ful this area is as a place to live, work and do busi­ness.”

His­toric Gle­nea­gles Sta­tion, which was re­fur­bished in 2014, has been listed as one of the top sta­tions in the UK
