Merchiston has the reputation of being Edinburgh^s literary quarter and was also the home of John Napier, he of the logarithms (what happened to those?). It was the first station out of Princes Street on the Carstairs line. Looking towards the city on a warm Easter Sunday 2015 you can see a stretch of platform supports on the down side and, right, some platform fencing, looking not too bad after 50 years.
