NBR / LNER D34 9502 'Glen Fintaig' at Edinburgh Waverley (1934).
A stunning shot of 'Glen Fintaig' in what must be the most iconic of settings at the heart of the North British Railway Company, namely Edinbrgh Waverley Station. The name "Waverley" (after the Waverley novels by Sir Walter Scott) came into being around 1854 and collectively referred to three smaller stations on adjacent sites, namely 'North Bridge' station (opened by the North British Railway on 18 June 1846), 'General' station (opened by Edinburgh and Glasgow Railway on 1 August 1846) and 'Canal Street' station (opened by Edinburgh, Leith and Granton Railway on 17 May 1847). In 1868 the North British Railway acquired the stations of its rivals, demolished all three, and closed the Scotland Street tunnel to Canal Street and became known as 'Waverley' station. The station complex was then extended between 1869 (following closure of Canal Street Station) and 1874 and a new roof constructed before being further rebuilt between 1892 and 1900. The 'North British Hotel' (now the Balmoral Hotel) subsequently opened on 15 October 1902 (again built by the NBR).
