The gloomy interior of St Margarets shed on 16 April 1965. A4 Pacific no 60027 Merlin, with only a few months to go until official withdrawal, is temporarily illuminated by the rays of the sun. On the right stands Black 5 no 45477, having recently moved across the city from Dalry Road shed, where final closure was imminent, while in the centre background stands A3 no 60041 Salmon Trout, which would itself be withdrawn from 64A in December of that year.

The unusual sight (in this part of the world at least) of NBL type 2 no D6102 passing St Margarets signal box hauling ecs. The photograph was taken on the afternoon of Saturday 28 February 1970 and the stock is that of a football special from the west of Scotland which had brought fans to Edinburgh for the Hibs v Rangers match at Easter Road (an entertaining 2-2 draw I understand).

EE Type 4 No. 345 swoops under London Road and past St. Margarets box on the 11.50 Aberdeen to Kings Cross Freightliner service on 28 February 1970. Meadowbank stadium is bathed in sunshine on what had been a fine afternoon but by four o^clock or so the railway is completely in shadow and this was the last shot of the day.
