A North Berwick train bound for Waverley speeds through Portobello on the ECML in March 2007 as an EWS class 66 with imported Russian coal climbs the gradient from the South Leith branch towards the main line. Trains from Leith on the old Lothian Lines route to Niddrie North would veer left here to skirt Portobello Yard on a path now followed by the road on the left. (For a map see image 1404).
