Railway 150th Anniversary Exhibition

It was held in the library in West King Street and was open to the public free of charge.

Late Arrival!

THE train which arrived at Helensburgh Library in West King Street in May 2008 was a very special train which last arrived in the town round about 1890.

It is a painting by artist, writer and railway enthusiast extraordinary C.Hamilton Ellis, and it shows a train bound for Helensburgh at a point just to the west of Cardross.

Exhibition tribute to Gregor Ian Smith

APRIL 18 2007 was the centenary of the birth of well known local artist Gregor Ian Smith, who died in 1985, and to mark the occasion Helensburgh Heritage Trust put together a display of his works, many of which had not been seen in public before.

I first met Gregor Ian when I was a child and when he and his wife Kathleen and their five children — Graham, Charles, Campbell, Kirsteen and Duncan — lived in West Argyle Street.

Helensburgh Station Bench

A VERY heavy piece of the history of Helensburgh Central Station was returned to the station in May 2008 — thanks to Helensburgh Heritage Trust.

When the Church of Scotland decided to close the Clyde View Eventide Home on East Montrose Street, they offered to the Trust an old station bench bearing the word Helensburgh, which must have been in use at the station in years gone by.
