The Photos

"These photos all come from the family collection of the grandson* of the young guy standing in the middle of this picture of the station staff at Dalry Road Station.  They were given to Robert Pelosi several years ago, then passed on to me.

*  I think his father was eventually in charge of Dalry Shed.

Railway Locos

"We're not sure where these photos of the railway locos were taken, but we think it was somewhere in the Slateford area of Edinburgh, near or in a brewery or maltings.

I was thinking that the locos might be shunting either the Caledonian Distillery or Lorimer & Clark's brewery at Gorgie/ Slateford or perhaps both."

Dalry Road Station

"This photo is  almost certainly of Dalry Road Station on the Caledonian Railway. (The LMS did have a Dalry Station, but it was in Ayrshire.)

Dalry Road Station in Edinburgh was the first stop out of Princes Street Station (the ‘Caley Station’) heading for Leith or Barnton.  It can be seen near the lower-right corner of this 1925 map:

Island Platform

The station had an island platform, and was located where the curve of Western Approach Road now is, just south of Dalry Road.  In modern terms, just beside LIDL! 

Here is another photo of the station, taken from the EdinPhoto web site"

and here are three more photos of the station that I found on the Railscot web site.

Western Approach Road

The Western Approach Road was largely built on the alignment of the former railway, and the Dalry Road bridge is in the location of a previous railway bridge.

There were accesses to the station both from Dalry Road and from the Telfer Subway – you can still see where the entrance from the subway has been built up.

I lived at Cathcart Place in the early 1970s, when the Western Approach Road was being planned and built, and at that stage the remains of the station were still there, but not including the roof.
