It was 45 years ago today…

Last day at Hawick…that I travelled on a railtour from Leeds, to run from Carlisle to Edinburgh on the last day of the Waverley Route via Hawick and Galashiels.

Today, the northern part of the line, from Waverley to Tweedbank, is being reconstructed, with opening scheduled for summer 2015. In the late 1960s, no-one thought we’d need railways in the 21st century…
