This forlorn platform is all that remains of Dalry Road station, located on the North Leith branch of the defunct Caledonian Railway. Once home to a station building, engine shed and goods yard, the station closed in the 1960s. The site now stands adjacent to Edinburgh’s Western Approach Road, which occupies the route of the former mainline.


While the buildings and main platform were demolished, and the former station yard redeveloped as residential accomodation, the Edinburgh-bound platform was left standing as a link to the area’s history.


EdinPhoto features an image of Dalry Road station while still in operation. Meanwhile, a curious piece of “street art” recently appeared on the adjacent footpath.
