The fan shape of this Tesco car park betrays the fact that this was once Davidson's Mains goods yard, with the through line to the north (right) leading to the passenger station on the other side of the road. All trace of the latter has gone. The station opened as Barnton Gate which is strange as Barnton wasn't then a proper settlement and the station was in the established village of Davidson's Mains (formerly Muttonhole).
