Trains at Seafield

After seeing very little rail traffic in recent years, there are currently, at November 2005,  two regular train services to Seafield.

There is a daily service on weekdays, bringing pipes to the land at Seafield, to the east of Leith Docks.  The pipes are unloaded by by crane and stored on the ground.

There are also coal trains passing through Seafield to Leith Docks where they pick up coal to be transported to power stations in England and Scotland.  One of the trains of empty coal wagons can be seen crossing a new level crossing in Albert Road and entering Leith Docks.
