Driver of the first train – a celebrity for a day

More-or-less… Visit “First Day of the Waverley Route” for more on the first public train from Edinburgh, on the line that closed more than 46 years ago (and see “Last Day of the Waverley Route” for an account of the last time – and what I really thought would be the last time – I travelled on the line).

Golden tickets to Galashiels

FalahillJust published – pictures from last Saturday 5th September – my photographic outing to record the “Golden Ticket” specials on the Borders Railway, the reopened northern part of the former Waverley route. Visit “By Gala Water” on Geoff’s Rail Diaries.

First train to Tweedbank

TweedbankSunday 6th September: the 9.11am from Waverley, the first public train to Galashiels for more than 46 years (and the first public train ever to Tweedbank). Yes, I made it – and what a pleasant trip it was too, on this fine sunny morning.

Next stop Hawick?
