The Route through Princes Street Gardens
A North British Railways train passes through Princes
Street Gardens, beneath the steep face of Edinburgh Castle Rock. The
train is heading to the east and approaching Edinburgh Waverley station.
There were two tracks through the gardens until the
opening of the Forth Rail Bridge in 1890 caused the traffic to increase.
Waverley station was extended. The two tracks were replaced by four,
shown in the photograph above in the 1890s.
