IT might seem an unlikely winner for a beauty award but Wishaw Railway Station has just been given a gong by Keep Scotland Beautiful.
The environmental charity visited every station in the country to check up on things like clearing litter to recycling, waste management and community links.
And judges for the Tidy Station Standards awards decided to present Wishaw with bronze status.
Derek Robertson, chief executive of Keep Scotland Beautiful, said: “By having these assessments we hope to enhance and recognise all the good work that exists and is being implemented by ScotRail staff at stations.
“Overall, we found the Scottish stations to be clean and welcoming and a credit to the staff who care for them, and we are committed to this campaign on station standards.”
