Jim,
My suggestion is Sighthill East Junction looking from the line coming round from Springburn. The carriages are on sidings adjoining the old Garnkirk & Glasgow line, which by then was the access to St Rollox Works and Townhead goods. In the background are the Glasgow Corporation Germiston housing schemes - you can just make out the 1930s tenements nearer and the 1920s 'four-in-a-block' houses beyond. See attached map. I also attach two aerial photo shots.

Thank you, John.
I had a feeling that it was in that airt, but did not remember it well enough.
It is a real bonus that you have included the aerial views - always fascinating. Thank you.
