Portobello East signalbox seen here from the west in November 1970 with the ECML disappearing straight ahead under the by then redundant plate girder bridge carrying the Lothian Lines. Beyond is the masonry arch under Brunstane Road at the west end of what had been Joppa Station. The former Waverley Route, devoid of passenger traffic in 1970 but still busy with freight to and from Millerhill Yard, diverges to the right behind the stone built base for the water tank.
