A noteworthy distinctive contribution to Glasgow's railway history in an area which has changed considerably within the last 50 years. Springburn itself was closely associated with locomotive building through the Hyde Park and Atlas Works which exported locomotives all over the world. Carsewell (1833-97) became resident engineer of the North British Railway in 1869 and was promoted to Engineer-in-Chief in 1879.
