Craigentinny Junction

Craigentinny Junction is where the west connection is made between Craigentinny Depot and the ECML. A westbound 125 is shown passing under the wires in 1989. The Moira Terrace bridges over the line give away that the line was formerly four tracks. Four tracks between Waverley and Portobello Jnct would be very useful today with the extra new trains from Edinburgh to Tweedbank. Perhaps the route via Abbeyhill and Lochend will see passenger trains again one day.
