taken 10 years ago, near to Granton, Edinburgh, Great Britain

Trinity & Newhaven Railway Station
Trinity & Newhaven Railway Station
The old railway station at Trinity. Now residential. Pity about the red fencing but...
Note the old stone platforms left and right.
I remember the platforms looking rather spectacular twenty years ago.
Part of Edinburgh Cyclepath Network.

In 1842 the Edinburgh, Leith & Newhaven Railway opened a line from Scotland Street to Trinity. Two years later it was reconstituted as the Edinburgh, Leith & Granton Railway and in 1846 when the line was extended to Granton a new through station was built alongside the terminus and from there the line curved to the west and followed the coast a short distance
to reach Granton station located inside the harbour on Granton Pier NT237774

Trinity station was closed by the LNER on 2 November 1925 and the railtracks were lifted in 1986 LinkExternal link

With thanks to
Ralph Rawlinson, who has provided me with some helpful information with the historical notes.
