Over 34 million people visit Glasgow Central train station each year, and the station won Station of the Year in 1999. The station was first opened in 1879 and is the northern terminus of the West Coast Main Line. The station features a famous glass-walled bridge across Argyle Street, nicknamed the "Heilanman's Umbrella" by locals. This name comes from the local urban myth that tight-fisted Highlanders would wait under the bridge in preference to buying an umbrella during bad weather. It has two levels, and caters for both local and long distance services.
Glasgow Central Station is the larger of Glasgow's two main railway stations, the other being Glasgow Queen Street Station. Glasgow Central is located close to the St. Enoch Shopping Centre, and Buchanan Street and Argyle Street.
