Borders Railway

After many years of campaigning and hard work, the Borders railway line has reopened from Edinburgh to Tweedbank, reversing Dr Beeching's closure of the line in the 60's.

Work began on the 31 mile route in 2010 and opened for the first public train journey last month.

A4 class steam loco Union of South Africa has been creating a lot of interest in the railway and providing a welcome influx of visitors to the area. The steam tours are due to stop on 18th October.

Hopefully a deal can be reached to resume steam on the line next year.
