Thanks for the comments. Its a great tunnel to visit as its not often you see the old line still intact and a few signals along the way.

As an outsider to the area and interested in old railways, it would be interesting to know where these old line run. Could anyone with knowledge post a map with the old lines overlaid. please?
Thanks

Sure thing. This map is centred over the Lynedoch station. Use the slider on the left to go between a satellite view and the OS map.

Hi all, enjoying looking at all the pics. I went to The Mount School in the late 60's early 70's. A few of us idiots used to climb over the fence opposite the Mearns St. school, slither down the grass slope to the top of the retaining wall. Then shin down while gripping on to a big cable that ran down the retaining wall. It used to scare the hell out of me going down that but you can't be seen to be scared or life would be even worse! Then we walked through the tunnel under our school and emerged at Wellington St. I think it was. That tunnel was damned dark as it was curved.
