Looking along the trackbed and platform remains at Merchiston on 5 October 2006. View is east towards the former Princes Street terminus. This section of the old route now serves as the eastern access to Slateford Yard (behind the camera). The road entry from Harrison Gardens is to the right where the JCB is parked.

One man and his dog approaching along the Caledonian trackbed from the direction of Merchiston station in 1972. View is south west, with Dundee Street footbridge [see image 29621] a short distance behind the camera. On the right is Angle Park Terrace with the tower of St Michael^s Church, standing in the background at no 1 Slateford Road. [Editor^s note: A definite ^Kitchen Sink^ feel about this one - listen for the church bells tolling, a Salvation Army band playing and the sounds of a Mr Burton murdering his trumpet in one of the top floor tenement flats in the background. Only problem is it^s not raining....]

Platform remains at Merchiston station looking west in April 2002. The road along the former trackbed is now the eastern vehicle access to Slateford Yard.
