Travelling at 3 mph really does give you much more time to see what is around you... this is about a quarter of my average speed, even for Team Tortoise, my cycling "team"! Reading information signs, even actually noticing some for the first time, meant I learned about the Tom Muir Trail and the redundant rail line that the route follows. The Campsie Branch ran from Coatbridge to Lennoxtown from 1848 to 1966, and it linked with the main Glasgow to Edinburgh line, so it would have been a vital lifeline to the area in its day. However, I did smile when I initially thought the Campsie Branch was in fact a reference to the huge (now varnished) tree root that has protruded through the sturdy wall just before the Milton of Campsie Station!!
