Is this the "longest" RLS poem ever?
"From a Railway Carriage" written along 140 metres of wall!
16 lines of beautifully illustrated poetry linking to our history and heritage.
An enchanting mural in a Victorian railway tunnel, created to preserve local history and to make people smile - as Craig Hill's video shows!
Did you see us on STV's 6pm News in March 2020?
And here are links two edits (one long, one short) of a cool video by Javier Flowers - Gracias Javier!

We are transforming a dark and scary tunnel into a safe and welcoming home for Scotland's largest historical mural, celebrating the industrial, social, artistic and literary history of our community. See FAQ page for directions to the tunnel.
