Name and dates

Colinton (1874-1943)

Opened on the Balerno Branch (Caledonian Railway).


This was a single platform station with a typical Caledonian Railway small station timber building. The station was immediately west of Colinton Tunnel.

The station was at a fairly cramped location and featured an interesting road bridge, with several arches, crossing the goods lines, passenger line and the Water of Leith at the west end. To the west of this was the signal box and a short branch over the river to the West Mills.

The goods yard was served form the west and the mills from the east.
