A piece of history

Dougla Farquhar has "unearthed" a little local history

A little Local History 

 

I thought this might be of interest to some members
The road in front of the entrance to Cockenzie Power Station is being excavated to lay new broadband pipes and they have uncovered the old tram lines which used to run from Edinburgh to Port Seton. I don't know when this ceased operating but it was certainly a long time ago The tram lines are approx 18inches below the existing road level
The attached photos show the lines
