Name and dates

Bowling Green Street Level Crossing (1847-1969)

Opened on the Edinburgh, Leith and Granton Railway.


This level crossing was protected by Bowling Green Street Signal Box. The box was located on the east side of the Bonnington Goods branch between the goods yard and Bonnington Goods Junction, just north of the Water of Leith Viaduct and West Bowling Green Street.

Between the level crossing and junction the branch had a loop. On the east side of this was a small goods yard, two goods sheds and a loading bank, approached from the south.
