Since we’re in the middle of a work trip to the UK, I was reminded it’s a perfect time for a quick update with one of the little stories from our visit, and this one is truly little: Glasgow has a cute and diminutive subway.
It had fifteen stations on a single loop line, like Mini Metro on easy mode. It also happens to have what appear to be eight-foot ceilings. Within the trains themselves, you’d probably be hitting your head if you’re more than 6’4” or so. To get into the cars you even have to duck! It also happens to be one of the cleanest subways we’ve ever been on.
If you happen to find yourself in Glasgow, it’s the easiest way to get from one of the two main train stations to the botanical gardens or the University of Glasgow, a beautiful campus with great views, which a local told me is the third oldest in Britain after Oxford and Cambridge.
