Coordinates: 55°52′59″N 3°04′59″W / 55.883°N 3.083°W / 55.883; -3.083 Eskbank railway station is a future station serving the town of Dalkeith, Midlothian, Scotland. It is to be reopened on the Waverley Line, a future line between Edinburgh and Tweedbank, just beyond Galashiels. There will be a half-hourly service to Gorebridge.

The station will sit approximately 12.5km from Waverley and 43.5 km from Tweedbank.,[1] and lies close to the towns of Bonnyrigg and Dalkeith.

The original Eskbank station was previously closed (along with the Waverley Line) in 1969. The new station, further south than the original, is (as of 2013) expected to reopen by 2015. The new construction work is being undertaken by BAM Nuttall on behalf of Network Rail and Transport Scotland.
