near to Gilmerton, Edinburgh, Great Britain

Disused railway
Disused railway
This railway served the Bilston Glen colliery, before the destruction of the coal industry. The track is still there and the cutting is used as an illegal rubbish dump. Most disused railways in the area are now footpaths/cycle tracks.

2012: The track has now been lifted, but the morons are still dumping stuff here.
