Re: Glasgow Riverside Museum
For those that knew the 'Clyde Room' in its various locations in two previous Transport Museums and before that in Kelvingrove Museum the big change is that the builders' models upto 1/32 scale are no longer in cases that one could walk round, seeing the minute details, but move, all be it slowly, on a conveyor belt. The argument is that displaying them this way allows a greater number to be exhibited than would otherwise be the case. What is on display is only a fraction of the the stock. They do offer behind the scene tours of the warehouse which is situated elsewhere.
In my opinion it is still a fascinating insight into the incredible range of Clyde built ships over the centuries.
As indicated there is full range of transport :cars, vans, buses, trams not to mention steam rail engines and a mock up of a Glasgow subway station.
