Slateford Depot

Slateford Depot was originally a Jarvis on track metering (OTM) depot.

In 2006 a temporary stabling point was build in Slateford Carriage Sidings (CS) by GeorgeLeslie. There were already existing Concrete Platforms but they needed replacing. All of this was for Stabling Scotrail's class 322 units which were eventually sold to Northern rail for use on the Leeds to Doncaster line. This left Slateford CS disused.

Slateford depot is currently owned by Network rail and Babcock rail.

MPV are usually stabled there during the autumn RHTT season. Other Track Machines and Test Trains also stay there when visiting Edinburgh.
