Scotland and its History. (1850s).

A world’s first in 1850s Edinburgh.

The Edinburgh, Newhaven, and Leith Railway was short lived, but their line from the centre of Edinburgh to Granton was very much real steampunk. The cable-hauled gradient wasn’t a new idea, but at the other end, was something very new indeed. The first roll-on roll-off train ferry in the world. In this video, I look at the history of the line, and hunt down remains of tunnels, stations and, yes, the train ferry.
