Roslin Colliery (1903-1966)
Served by the Glencorse Extension (Edinburgh, Loanhead and Roslin Railway).
Opened around 1876 by the Glasgow Iron Company and known as 'The Moat' after the farm just to the north. The company also owned the Motherwell Malleable Iron Works.
Re-sunk by the Shotts Iron Company in 1903.
Coal was moved by rail to the Ramsay Colliery washery.
The colliery was served by a branch from the Edinburgh, Loanhead and Roslin Railway which struck off from its Glencorse extension just west of Roslin station. The junction had a miniature signal box.
