East Pilton Halt

One of Edinburgh's smaller stations  -  It looks very rural to me

Platform Building

The building at the top of this page also appears to be on the platform in the photo below.   UPDATE:  No, it's not.  See 'Recollections 1' below.

East Pilton Station


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.
