A northbound cement train photographed shortly after turning west off the ECML at Monktonhall Junction on 19 July 2018. GBRf 66736 is on the 1961 BR link to Millerhill Yard Junction. From there it will run north to Niddrie West Junction to join the sub. At one time such traffic would have run over the long closed direct freight route from Monktonhall to Niddrie West via Wanton Walls Junction.

Birmingham Type 2 No. D5316 passes Monktonhall Junction on 21 April 1970 heading east with a rake of Cemflo cement wagons, presumably empty and destined for Oxwellmains cement works. The line to Hardengreen Junction, then still open as far as Dalkeith Colliery, can be seen diverging sharply to the left.
