The Tranent to Cockenzie Waggonway was an early waggonway, possibly the first in Scotland, opened in 1722. It was 2+1⁄2 miles (4 km) miles long and connected coal pits at Tranent with the salt pans at Cockenzie and harbour at Port Seton in East Lothian, Scotland. The track was wooden, and wagons were drawn by horses. The Battle of Prestonpans in 1745 was fought across the line.

dbo:abstract
  • Der Waggonway Tranent–Cockenzie war wohl die erste Pferde-Feldbahn in Schottland. Die 1722 mit hölzernen Schienen errichtete 4 km lange Strecke mit einer Spurweite von 3 Fuß 3 Zoll (991 mm) verband die Kohlengruben in Tranent mit den Salinen von Cockenzie und dem Hafen von Port Seton. Entlang der Strecke wurde 1745 die Schlacht bei Prestonpans ausgetragen. Die Strecke wurde 1815 mit gusseisernen Fischbauchschienen modernisiert und ab 1846 an die neue Hauptstrecke der North British Railway angeschlossen. Ein Teil der Strecke war noch bis 1968 in Betrieb. (de)

The track was wooden, and wagons were drawn by horses. The Battle of Prestonpans in 1745 was fought across the line. It was converted to use iron rails in 1815, and was connected to the new main line North British Railway from 1846, later becoming superseded by a branch line of that railway. A section of the original line of route was still in railway use until 1968. Some of the route can be traced at the present day. (en)
