Historic Haddington

The original station was opened in 1846 along with the new main line from Edinburgh to Berwick, but as a branch line.  The line was originally single-track, but shortly after opening it was converted to double.  That did not last long either as within ten years it was singled again.  However, the infrastructure remained at double track width.

The line closed to passenger traffic in 1949 and freight traffic in 1968 after which the lines were lifted.  Most of the trackbed and bridges are still in place.
