Edinburgh, Scotland

(map) The Scottish capital hosts a relatively large passenger station called Waverly station which has a train in or out of out around every 4 minutes during peak hours. To the south of the downtown is the freight bypass.

June 18th, 2007

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 trainspots.co.uk, 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.
