The subject of this tune is Edinburgh's Innocent Railway, opened in 1831 to transport coal from the mines around Dalkeith to the coal-hungry capital city. It was known as the Innocent railway because it used horses rather than steam engines. It functioned until 1968, when it became disused.

This set is part of The Edinburgh Slow Session consisting of tunes particularly played at the Edinburgh Slow Session.
