Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gorgie East Railway Station was a railway station in Scotland on the Edinburgh Suburban and Southside Junction Railway. It was opened on 1 December 1884 and served the Gorgie area of Edinburgh. Another Gorgie station run by the Caledonian Railway was nearby, on the Caledonian Main Line into Edinburgh Princes Street. Gorgie station closed in 1962, when passenger rail services were withdrawn from the Edinburgh Suburban line as part of the British Railways rationalisation programme known as the Beeching Axe, although the line itself was retained for rail freight use. The route continues to be used for freight services to this day, so freight trains avoid Edinburgh's main stations of Edinburgh Waverley and Haymarket, and occasionally diverted passenger trains also pass along this line.show more
