Leith Central railway station

Leith Central Railway Station was a railway station in Leith, Scotland. It formed the terminus of a North British Railway branch line from Edinburgh Waverley. The station was built on a large scale, including a trainshed over the platforms.

Following the amalgamation of the City of Edinburgh and the Burgh of Leith in 1920, the two formerly separate tram systems were joined (including the conversion of Edinburgh’s system from cable haulage to electricity). The improved services provided intense competition with the railway, affecting the viability of Leith Central station. for more click here
