Balerno Station
« on: January 06, 2019, 12:40:01 PM »
Balerno had two stations, one goods and the other passenger. As yet I haven’t found the site of the passenger station, but the goods station has been built on. It became Balerno High School.
   The station opened on the 1st August 1874 and the last rain ran on the 1st November 1943 (LMS). The station finally closed 1st June 1949.


Date of photograph not known.


Balerno Passenger Station 1962.

Will take a wonder up to Balerno and try and take a more up to date photo some time later in the year. I’m pretty sure that this has now been built on, so might not be lucky. There is a road named “Station Loan”.
As I said earlier, the goods station has now been built on by Balerno High School.
