Platform Building

The building on the platform in the photo at the top of this page looks familiar to me.  Is this another photograph of it?

UPDATE:  No, it's not.  See 'Recollections 1' below.

East Pilton Halt


I remember being told that, during World War II Bruce Peebles' works were defended by men on the platform at East Pilton station with rifles - but they were just dummy rifles, made of wood.   (I forget who told me.)

I don't know whether the men with the guns were cadets, or were from some other group.
