Millerhill Yard

View south over the site of the old down yard at Millerhill on 3 June 2011 with WCRC 57001 passing with the empty stock of The Royal Scotsman. The line curving off to the right is part of the new Borders Railway route heading for its next station at Shawfair. Part of the new Shawfair development will occupy the site of the former Monktonhall Colliery. The short section of new track is currently being used as a replacement turnback siding for trains terminating at Newcraighall. See image 4433 for the view thirty years earlier.
