Niddrie [3rd] (1864-1869)

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

Opened on the Edinburgh and Dalkeith Railway.

Description

This was the third station at Niddrie immediately south of Niddrie South Junction, on approximately the same site as Newcraighall station.

This station opened when the second station, Niddrie Junction [2nd] just to the north, closed when a new alignment from Newhailes Junction was opened to serve the Musselburgh branch.

(Niddrie [1st] was just nearby on the line to the west where the original alignment of the Fisherrow branch met the South Esk branch.)

The third station was relatively short lived.
