Name and dates

Rosslynlee Hospital Halt (1958-1962)

Opened on the Peebles Railway.

Description

This halt was opened to the north west of Rosslynlee Hospital. It had a short platform (20ft) on the east side of the line.

The halt was just south of a siding serving the hospital and its own gas works (the later reached by reversal). The siding approached from the north and located on the east side. The siding was known as 'Asylum Siding' and 'Holme bank siding'..

It was opened by the deputy Lord Lieutenant of the county of Midlothian and the convener of the Rosslynlee Hospital Committee on the 10th of December 1958, in use by the 11th.

Little remains of the platform, although its site can be found. The stone wall between the railway and the hospital being a useful reference. The site of the buffer stop can also be found and the site of a fuel store remains fenced off.
