Redford Barracks

The large blocks of buildings in the lower part of this map in the triangle between Colinton Road and Colinton Mains Drive are Redford Barracks.

Bob Wyllie, now living in Brussels, Belgium, has asked a question about the thin strip of woodland in the centre of this map.  He has been told that this was once the course of a railway that was used to bring stone for the construction of Redford Barracks.  He is keen to discover more about this railway.
