Old Travel Blog Photograph Tea Room Railway Station Wemyss Bay Scotland
Old travel Blog photograph of the Tea Room in the Railway Station in Wemyss Bay in North Ayrshire, Scotland. Work began in late 1862 on the single track Greenock and Wemyss Bay Railway branching from the main Glasgow, Paisley and Greenock Railway at Port Glasgow and taking an inland route across to the coast at Inverkip before descending to Wemyss Bay. This was to connect to Clyde steamer services for Rothesay, Largs and Millport, Isle of Cumbrae, allowing a combined train and steamer journey time of an hour and a half, compared with a typical time of three hours by steamer from Glasgow. The station was designed by James Miller in 1903 for the Caledonian Railway.
