Across Scotland there are remnants of many disused railway lines, reminders of the wider network that once served a variety of locations. Some fascinating examples are to be found in eastern Scotland and, although many are now fields, footpaths, and cycle ways, others have left more tangible traces of what they once were. Using a fascinating collection of photographs, Michael Mather explores the disused railways of east Scotland, bringing them to life with contemporary images, photographs revealing what remains of the railway infrastructure, and some shots of the views that passengers might have had from the trains travelling along these lines or of points of interest along the way. Also included are a selection of historical photographs; some taken when the lines were still open, and some just after their closure. Lines covered include: Ellon to Fraserburgh, Ballater, the Speyside Railway, Dundee to Newtyle, the Strathmore Route and its branches, the Aberfeldy Branch, Comrie to Lochearnhead, Glenfarg, the Fife & Kinross Railway, the Devon Valley Railway, Dalry to Leith, Scotland Street to Granton, the Penicuik Branch, Peebles, the Border Counties Railway and the Waverley Route.
