Transports of Delight

The RIN Scotland Summer Meeting

The RIN Scotland Summer Meeting was held in late June, in Glasgow.
Members enjoyed a visit to the new Riverside (Transport) Museum, the Glasgow Tall Ship Glenlee, and a visit to the Glasgow Museums Resource Centre, where there is a vast amount of Transport and Technology material not currently on public display.
Guided tours were arranged at each attraction, which provided a wealth of information and greatly added to the enjoyment of the 10 members who were present.
The new Riverside Museum, with twice as many technology and transport items on display as its predecessor, would warrant several days attention on its own, whilst the Resource Centre has a mind boggling amount of art and artefacts, of which RIN Scotland members saw but a small sample.
Highlight if the day was the tour of Glasgow's Tall Ship, the Glenlee. She has been painstakingly restored, mostly by volunteers, over two decades, and now holds pride of place in front of the new museum. She is a 245ft steel barque, built in Port Glasgow in 1896, and is one of only 5 Clydebuilt sailing ships still afloat.
