The North British Main Line

At least I think that's what they call it. I'm actually talking about the line between Berwick upon Tweed & Edinburgh Waverly. I wish to know what stations a stopping train would stop at between those two destinations. These are the stations I already know about, heading northwards:

Burnmouth Junction
Reston Junction
East Linton
East Fortune
Drem Junction
Longniddry Junction
Prestonpans Junction

That information came from a well-known book called "British Railways, Pre-Grouping Atlas & Gazetteer" and is an Ian Allan publication. Unfortunately, the northern end of the map on that particular page lacks clarity. There could be another three stations or so between Prestonpans Junction and Edinburgh Waverly. Does anyone know what they may be?

Attached is a page from the spring 1932 public TT. Showing the 6.25pm from Edinburgh.

There was a station at Joppa on the main line, but it appears Edinburgh to Berwick trains did not stop there. There may be others, New Hailes for instance.

The reprint of the July 1922 Bradshaw's shows a 7.0am Waverley to Newcastle stopping train which also called at Abbeyhill and Piershill - there were no calls made at these Edinburgh suburban stations by any Down service from Berwick.
