Morning rush-hour at a pre-barrier Waverley on Friday 21 September 1996 and a sole passenger is visible in this shot. The station handled fewer passengers 14 years ago, but not that many fewer. Bygones include left-luggage lockers, early privatisation ScotRail redcoats, and of course the Solari. Departures were not displayed in chronological order which now seems almost crazy. Arrivals however were, and as each one dropped off the top, the rest moved up, flipping through the repertoire, one panel at a time.
