Bloody Edinburgh trams

*South Suburban Line - but the problem is getting the tram from Haymarket to line and getting it back to Princes Street from an already busy section east of Waverley. Or if you run it as a normal train, then you've got capacity problems.

I suppose the answer would be to connect the railway line to the tram line before Haymarket, have the tram take the usual tram line and then re-connect with the railway line after Waverley.  There must be a way to work it out.

One end of the sub is at Haymarket Central Jn(in line with Tynecastle and Haymarket depot) and the other end is at Portobello Jn (all ready at full capacity).

Will be good once it's done IMO. Will be carnage in the short term on Easter rd and Bonnington rd.

Looks like the brownfield site at Ocean Terminal is going to finally get completed, saw plans for almost a 1000 properties, primary school,woodlands etc. Creating a new village in that shithole area basically.

I got an early morning bus into Edinburgh airport and was there in no time, clean and comfortable. Tram back, couldn't believe how slow it was, was looking for the donkey pulling it. 

The Express bus is the better option out of the two.

Anti-clockwise from Haymarket - could turn off to Dalry Road, down Distillery Lane with a 5th platform, over the railway line and Russell Road to get to the South Sub. Once you get past Brunstane though, you would trundle along at 50mph taking up valuable ECML capacity, and then you'd somehow need to get back up to Regent Road and Princes Street.

If all the Edinburgh buses were like the Airport bus service, then nobody would be asking for a tram.
