This map shows quite an extensive network of railway
lines around Edinburgh in 1928.
Now, eighty years later many of the old railway
lines on this map have been lifted. There is still a little freight
traffic on the former South Suburban line, and on the lines to Leith Docks and
Powderhall, but the only lines that still carry passengers are those
heading to the west and to the east out of Edinburgh Waverley station.
As was normal practice for railway maps, the lengths
of the lines on this map are shown in miles and chains
