Thank you to James Greig for allowing me to reproduce this photo of the railway line crossing the road outside the former Bonnington.

Anderson Bond

Railway Line

"Here is a photo that I took today of the rails in the middle of Anderson Place.  They stretch from what was the old bond and now houses to the side where John Lewis have their warehouse.

I'm not too sure if these were original train lines ( -  it does seem like it) or whether they might have been originally used to transport the liquor to the Bond."

SAI

"I also noticed today that what used to be the old SAI building has all been flattened to make way for either offices or new flats, and you can now see much of Anderson Place from what used to be Bowling Street (not West Bowling Street)."

Looking East

A few months ago, I took a photo of the railway lines crossing Anderson Place, looking to the East towards the former Anderson Bond.  I've not yet found the time to add that one to the web site.

In fact the old large-scale maps of Edinburgh show railway lines leading from the main railway network into several premises around Edinburgh, including Bonnington Bond and other premises in the Bonnington Area.

The line crossing Anderson Place can be seen on this map.  Please click on the map to enlarge it then scroll along to Anderson Place ***

***  Anderson Place is towards the upper-right corner of the map.

It is above the large 'VI'  and the word 'CALEDONIAN'  beside the Caledonian Railway line
