Here is a photograph of the locked gate at the entrance to Newington railway station.  The photo was taken in June 1966.  The railway closed to passenger traffic in September 1962.

Memories

Forbes Wilson, who now lives near Guildford, Surrey, England writes:

"When I was at Edinburgh University and the Kings Buidlings, I would occasionally walk up Craigmillar Park towards Newington and would pass the closed gate that would have taken you down to the platform.

It's sad to see what is left of the station now."
