Description

This is a double track tunnel with the former Winchburgh station at the north end and the former Broxburn West Signal Box for the Niddry Castle Oilworks to the south. At both ends it approaches in long cuttings.

The tunnel has undergone works on several occasions, most recently during electrification. Back in 1890 during repairs the line was singled and a temporary signal box used for the duration of works.
