Description

This was the terminus of a short branch from west of Slateford station and just east of Slateford [1st] station. The approach from the east. Nothing remains of the terminus due to subsequent developments. It was roughly where New Mart Road runs alongside the Water of Leith.

The terminus consisted of a platform with cattle stances and a loop. This depot was on a much smaller scale to the nearby Gorgie Cattle Market [NB].
