Musselburgh, Scotland

(map) Just a few minutes to the east of Edinburgh, Musselburgh hosts the regional freight yard called Millerhill and is beyond the Edinburgh freight bypass. The passenger station is very accessible with the freight yard available to trainspot at just a few minute walk away down a bicycle path, under the A-1 highway, and up onto a road bridge.

We took a couple of hours to do some trainspotting while at a conference in Edinburgh, Scotland. Stopping first at Waverly station and then travelling east to Musselburgh station on a tip from, we caught 24 trains ranging from two car Electric Multiple Units to 60-car unit coal trains in short order before returning to the venue.
