Redford Barracks

Thank you to Brian Clapp for sending me this map to help answer a Railway Question about a line at Redford used during the construction of Redford Barracks.

"This extract from W&AK Johnston's Post Office Plan of 1912-13 shows the proposed tramway running from top to bottom of this map, about 2/3 of the way across the map. 

The course of the proposed tramway, shown on the map, follows what is now Allan Park and Craiglockhart Road. It passes through the hockey-stick shaped wood mentioned by Bob Wyllie, and ends in front of Redford Barracks."
