Seafield is an industrial area beside the Firth of Forth between Leith and Portobello.  This view looks to the east towards Portobello. 

This was once a busy route in to the large marshalling yards in Leith Docks.  I have seen very little traffic on this line in recent years, but I believe that in there are now ( September 2005) trains:

-   to collect coal from Leith docks and

-   to deliver pipes to the pipe inspection and coating works at Leith Docks.

In these photographs the crane is using its magnetic grip to unload one of the pipes.
