Brian’s talk and exhibition on the history of the early railways of Dalkeith proved to be a great success. About 70 people attended the talk and the exhibition in Dalkeith Arts Centre last night . Brian gave a fascinating insight into the development of the Innocent Railway and the North British Railway with the aid of his hand drawn maps and  sketch views .He has carried out extensive research looking at old maps , photographs,records at Loanhead archives, and visiting sites to see what if any evidence is left of the railways .We have received very good feedback from those who atended, some people saying that the exhibition should be made available to view more widely .photo railway talk 3  photo railway talk 12 photo of railway talk 13
