    Just an update of the latest photos on the Shrubhill Tram Depot in Edinburgh.

    Up until 1920 the Leith Corporation Tramways owned the Shrubhill Tram Depot. As Leith was a seperate borough they had their own seperate tram system and Shrubhill was their major tram depot. The Leith system was electrified, whereas the Edinburgh system used cable haulage. The strange feature of this particular tram depot was the underground chamber at the main turn into the garages which would have been permanently manned during operating hours to try to reduce cable-snagging.
    Trams were finally replaced by diesel buses after the war and the tram depot was turned into a garage for Lothian buses. It was then turned into a musem, and finally closed down and abandoned in the 1980s.

    For more information just see previous posts from Chiropetra and the other previous master explorers.
