About half an hour after I added this picture to the web site, I received an email from Bob Henderson.

Two Tracks at Burdiehouse

"Thomas Lee is spot on with the track in the dip at Burdiehouse, but this is the Mk.2 track and a much more sophisticated one at that.

I remember it well, although by the time this pic was taken, I was married and had started a family.

The original track was further south along the dip, just about in the middle of what is now the main playground of the primary school."
