NT4874 : The Haddington Branch

taken 7 years ago, near to Huntington, East Lothian, Great Britain

The Haddington Branch
The Haddington Branch
The North British Railway upset a lot of people when they chose to ignore Haddington and run some distance to the north of the town. Going north meant easier gradients and missing the high ground around Pencraig. Haddington had to put up with a branch line.

There is no doubt that Haddington could support a service to Edinburgh now, but lack of capacity between Longniddry and Edinburgh is probably a problem. The trackbed is now a cycle path.
