Edinburgh Park

Arriving in Edinburgh for the first time since their new tram system opened I obviously had to take a journey, so I ended up out here in the middle of nowhere. It's all very shiny, and when I visited, rather deserted and pointless.

The tram stop is to the left of this path, and the station to its right:

From the path you can get this view of the whole edifice, tubular footbridge included:

Edinburgh Park footbridge

The approach to the rather monolith-black tower on this (the south) side of the line:

The entrance to platform 2 for trains westwards:

Up the stairs (or lift) to the footbridge, to look east along the line:

The footbridge is a rather featureless white corridor:

Over the footbridge on platform 1 we look at the exit doors from the stairwell:

Opposite the steps doors is the entrance to a concourse area:

Looking east from the other end of the concourse:

A stained glass window sits in one of the concourse walls:

On platform 1, looking east at a shelter and the station buildings:
