After passing south through Loanhead the EL&R route veered left, before crossing the valley of the Bilston Burn on Bilston Glen Viaduct, part of which can be seen in the left background. The last train crossed the viaduct (from Roslin Colliery) in the 1960s with the route south closed in 1966. The flat area to the right housed some of the extensive exchange sidings serving Bilston Glen Colliery, which ceased production in 1988. The last train from here ran in 1991, around two years after the line had been 'officially' closed. Much of the area is now an industrial estate.
