Old Photograph Steam Train Edie Ochiltree Eastfield Glasgow Scotland


Old photograph of the steam train Edie Ochiltree in Eastfield Glasgow, Scotland. Eastfield was a steam shed under British Railways with the depot code 65A. Edie Ochiltree is a character in Sir Walter Scott's 1816 novel The Antiquary, a licensed beggar of the legally protected class known as Blue gowns or bedesmen, who follows a regular beat around the fictional Scottish town of Fairport. Scott based his character on Andrew Gemmels, a real beggar he had known in his childhood. Along with Jonathan Oldbuck, the novel’s title character, Ochiltree is widely seen as one of Scott's finest creations.
