    Former subway station that closed in the 1930's. One full station is still there and part of a second station is still accessible. The pavillion or station itself to get down to the Botanic Garden Station burned down at some point, in the 1970's from whaat I understand.
     Media Coverage
    some media coverage, mostly in archives documents.
     Future Plans
    the 2 stations are now located IN the Glasgow Botanic Garden.
