It's 10.00am and the V2 is all set to depart for the run north to Aberdeen. Looking down on the station and the V2 is the Scottish National Gallery building first opened to the public in 1859. The V2 returned later in the day to Edinburgh and demand was so great for this trip that passengers on board were given a leaflet for a last B1 excursion in December.
