Although Glencorse was the last passenger station on the branch it was not the end of the line. Rails continued south to serve sidings linked via an incline from Mauricewood Colliery then passed below the main A701 road to reach Penicuik Gasworks and finally on to a coal depot at Eastfield. One of the few reminders of the lines running beyond Glencorse is this surviving bridge abutment and short length of embankment approximately 400m south of the site of Glencorse goods yard. Photographed on 14 February 2011, with the 0900 Edinburgh - Peebles - Galashiels First Bus passing by on the A701.
