This is the view that greets me most mornings. It might just seem like any other train station but Edinburgh Waverley lies at the bottom of Britain's windiest steps (I've not tripped down... yet) and occupies the spot that, around 250 years ago, was the city's communal sewer. Some would argue that things haven't changed much, but I still get a thrill from taking the train in the morning, wondering what would really happen if I slipped onto the train to Plymouth, Newcastle or London. From Edinburgh to the world...

steep - btw I have tripped down those steps - i used to live in Newington and tripped (dr*nk) down the entrance steps - top to bottom (only about 14 steps) with a sore back to prove it....
