This clock is in the Antonine Shopping Centre, Cumbernauld. It has a bit of
fame surrounding it. It was donated to the New Town of Cumbernauld
following its removal from a derelict train station in Glasgow, St Enoch's.
It was featured in the movie Gregory's Girl (it did work then, honest!).

When the town centre was "revamped", the community were promised the clock
would have pride of place in our new shopping centre. It was moved to a
quiet part of the centre where no-one sees it, and now to cap it all, it
doesn't even work anymore.

Hope the pic is okay.
