Glasgow Queen Street station goes blue to salute NHS heroes


It was the turn of the new glass frontage of Glasgow Queen Street Station to be lit-up in blue on 9 April to show solidarity with key workers and frontline NHS staff all across the country.

Scotland’s third-busiest station joined famous venues such as the Glenfinnan viaduct – famous from the Harry Potter films – in lighting up in NHS colours to salute the dedication and efforts of healthcare workers in the battle against the coronavirus. The light shining from the new station onto Glasgow’s premier civic square served as a symbol of support and solidarity.

Alex Hynes, Scotland’s Railway.

Alex Hynes, managing director of Scotland’s Railway said: “We are delighted to illuminate  the new glass façade of Glasgow Queen Street Station as a symbol of public support for the vital and fantastic work of NHS staff who are tackling the coronavirus.

“We are hugely grateful to everyone in the NHS and all key workers across the country, including those in our railway family, who are playing a massive role in supporting all of us across the country at this time.”

The lighting of Glasgow Queen Street was undertaken by the Stage Group, following on from the same team’s successful illumination of the Glenfinnan viaduct on the West Higland line the week before.
