The separate Depots of the Glasgow Transport Corporation originally had their own memorials. Now that most of the depots have been closed they are located in Parkhead Depot which still operates as part of First Bus.

My thanks to Alex Glass for these photographs.

First of all some general shots of the "Memorial Garden". Please note that this is in the car park and seems to be barricaded in by cars.
