Straiton Sidings

View north along the trackbed of the Edinburgh, Loanhead and Roslin Railway in February 2011 between Loanhead and Gilmerton. The substantial modern bridge spanning the abandoned route carries Edinburgh's A720 City Bypass and was brought into use with the new road in late 1988. Final closure of the railway route, latterly serving Bilston Glen Colliery, occurred 6 months later, following closure of the colliery itself. See image 32922
