National Bank of Scotland
"I started work in the
National Bank of Scotland, South Side Branch on 21st January 1957.
to travel in by train, steam for the first year until the DMUís took over,
with a weekly season ticket which covered Inveresk or Musselburgh to
Edinburgh Waverley. With three nights a week at Heriot Watt College in
Chambers Street studying for the banking exams and often returning to
Edinburgh on Saturday afternoon and sometimes again in the evening I used
to do up to 11 return journeys a week. I
seem to remember the ticket was 3/4d (17p).
I used to go to the Central
library in George IV Bridge on Saturday afternoons and there was a rain
from Inveresk about 1420 which was first stop Waverley so leaving the
house in Inveresk at 1415. I could be up
the steps from the Waverley and in the Library by 1445. Coincidentally,
this was often the same train as I had taken back from work earlier which
had been out to Dunbar and back"
