Scope and Content The Booking Hall, Waverley Station, Edinburgh Waverley Station lies beneath the wide span of the North Bridge. It was designed in 1868-74 by James Bell, chief engineer for the North British Railway, to replace an earlier station on the same site, and was extensively reconstructed 1892-1902. The booking hall formed part of the major reconstruction between 1892 and 1902. It has a mosaic floor and an ornate roof, with its large dome and ceiling panels displaying fine wrought ironwork. The timber-panelled booking office was removed in 1970. When Waverley Station opened, its 13-acre glass roof was one of the largest in the world, and its eastern signal box was one of the largest manual boxes ever constructed, with 260 signal levers in one continuous frame.
