Glasgow and South Western Railway
GLASGOW AND SOUTH WESTERN RAILWAY
Created in 1847 as an amalgamation of the Glasgow, Dumfries & Carlisle with the Paisley, Kilmarnock & Ayr Railway, it also incorporated the oldest Scots railway, the Kilmarnock & Troon.
The company did not use a really heraldic device on its badge: a caduceus of Mercury (messenger of the gods) for speed; the distaff of Minerva (goddess of handicrafts) for local industries and the trident of Neptune for the Ayrshire ports.
