Bonnyrigg: The former Bonnyrigg station closed to passengers in 1962. The area has since been landscaped and now forms part of the Penicuik - Dalkeith Walkway. View is north east along the down platform on 5 March 2011 in the general direction of Eskbank. The line ran straight ahead over a level crossing on Cockpen Road and through the site now occupied by the houses directly opposite, with those to the right built on the old goods yard. As a result, the walkway deviates slightly east at the crossing to run along the road between the houses (named Waverley Court) before rejoining the original route 250 yards further on.
