A young woman with a pushchair walks from King George V Park, through the site of Scotland Street station towards the south portal of the newly reopened Rodney Street Tunnel, perhaps on her way to visit the superstore located alongside the northern approach. The old tunnel now provides a useful pedestrian and cycle link between this part of the New Town and the Broughton area, avoiding the need to cross two very busy roads. [See image 36593]

The NBR North Leith Branch, now a walkway, looking towards the terminus on 31 October 2009.  A little behind me was Bonnington station, still substantially intact.  Through the fence to the right ran the goods lines serving the once industrial Bonnington area, split in two by the Water of Leith which the lines crossed.   There was a goods station at the start of the branch, then lines fanned out into a dense pattern serving tanneries, ironworks and the like.  At one point a line formed a tight figure 4; presumably worth all the required reversing in a pre-motor age.
