a house by the train line

A little cottage at the Inveresk railyards. I'm not quite sure what purpose it served, but as it's right beside the derelict line that crosses via a narrow bridge over the North Esk River my guess is it was some kind of toll house or check-in-booth for trains coming to the railyards.

Of course, nowadays it mostly functions as a target for graffiti, an object of curiousity to passers-by, and a subject for daily photo bloggers.


  1. Excellent for a Daily bloggers post ... cute but a bit to isolated for me...now if the train was still running right by .. that might entice me to take up residence!!

  2. Sadly, the trains are long gone Dianne!
