Here a rather large 4-6-0 locomotive is being used to haul a train on the
short former Caledonian Railway line between Princes Street station and
Bruce Peebles' transformer factory can be seen in the background.
However, the factory was destroyed by fire in 1999.
I remember being told that, during World War II Bruce Peebles' works
were defended by men on the platform at East Pilton station with rifles -
but they were just dummy rifles, made of wood. (I forget who
I don't know whether the men with the guns were cadets, or were from
some other group.
