Portobello [1st]

A look along the embankment of a railway which closed over 150 years ago. This was part of the Leith arm of the Edinburgh & Dalkeith Railway, photographed in October 2010. The line here ran parallel with Baileyfield Road which is to the left. Somewhere around here was the first Portobello Station. Because of the period and the nature of the line I don't imagine it was very substantial and there's certainly nothing to see today. It appears to be autumn on the left of the picture and spring on the right. I don't remember noticing this at the time; I think my camera is possessed.
