Edinburgh

Transport

1842

The adverts for shipping, stage coaches, railways and other forms of transport are all taken from the Caledonian Mercury in 1842 make interesting reading.

The railway from London had not yet reached Edinburgh, so there were regular sailings from Edinburgh to London and to Newcastle.

However, 1842 was the year  the Edinburgh-Glasgow railway opened, so providing a quick alternative to the canal and the stagecoach.

Some of the transport adverts from the Caledonian Mercury, 1842 are reproduced below:
