Note: text in square brackets is added for clarity and was not part of the location's name.

Opened on the Gorgie Cattle Market Branch (North British Railway).


The cattle market was served by a branch from Gorgie Junction. This struck off from from alongside the goods yard at Gorgie East and ran south west to the north side of the cattle market.

Although nothing remains of the terminus the cattle walking route under the Chesser Avenue road bridge remains. The cattle stances were to the east of the road and market to the west.

This was a large terminus with 11 lines and 4 large platforms with stances and 5 smaller platforms. The depot was on a much larger scale to the nearby Gorgie Cattle Market [CR].
