Entrance to Leith South yard from Albert Road level crossing in September 2016 with the dock entrance behind the camera. The newish looking gate is a remnant of the 'last hurrah' for the branch, when regular traffic made a 21st century return in order to move imported coal from the docks to Cockenzie Power Station (see image 9623). The power station was finally shut down in March 2013. The gate on the right displays my all-time favourite helpful notice which reads... 'Open Gates Before Proceeding.'
