Default "Vintage" railway map uncovered during Glasgow Queen Street renovations

Glasgow Queen Street is being renovated just now. In the low level, they're taking away all the old yellow wall panels (and all the seats )

This was underneath the yellow wall panels in the middle of the station. I thought it was interesting to see, since it's from a long-gone rail era. The lettering is obviously hand-painted.

Was this before Charing Cross was taken off the Jubilee Line? (Obviously before Queen Street was taken off the Jubilee).

No really, I'm joking.

That's a shame! I passed through recently and remarked on how good the yellow panels / seats looked. Obviously retro, but in looked good nick (from the train at least) and a nice bit of minimalist functionality. Reminiscent of Berlin somehow.

Any word about the sign being kept? or is it facing the skip?
