Falahill Summit

Looking south on the bed of the Waverley line as the formation leads to Falahill summit. Lower right can be seen an odd yellow 'plastic box' type affair with a metal disc - several of which were embedded into the ballast here. Amazingly, coach-bolts from the old line, as well as sand bins, telegraph insulators and datum 'monuments' are all lying around here - and we even came across a very old Tizer bottle - possibly quaffed by a member of railway staff many years ago.....
