Edinburgh to Inverkeithing (Middleton)

1 In Stock

Including the Port Edgar, North Queensferry and Rosyth Dockyard branches. Up until 1890, with the opening of the Forth Bridge, the route when travelling from the west of Edinburgh to Inverkeithing was via Kirkliston, South Queensferry, Port Edgar and North Queensferry. Passengers had to transfer onto the ferry to cross the Firth of Forth, before then returning to the railway to complete their journeys. With the opening of the Forth Bridge the routes to South and North Queensferry became unused by main line passenger trains, causing the North British-operated ferry service to come to an end. This book looks in detail at the two routes and their connecting lines. Maps and photographs are used, along with some gradient profiles, timetables and tickets, to illustrate this subject. Well illustrated throughout with black & white photographs, accompanied by detailed captions. Hardback. 96 pages.
