RAILWAY TO MAKE FIRST PASSENGER JOURNEY...
Author: ALASTAIR DALTONTitle: RAILWAY TO MAKE FIRST PASSENGER JOURNEY
Date: 2015-09-05 10:18:44Uploaded by: Archie
HUNDREDS of passengers will today be among the first for nearly half a century to take a train to the central Borders, ahead of tomorrow’s historic line re-opening.

The winners of 480 “Golden Tickets” will board special services from the Borders Railway’s seven new stations as part of celebrations to mark its restoration between Edinburgh and Tweedbank. The original Waverley line – named after Sir Walter Scott’s novels – closed 46 years ago.

Lord Steel, who campaigned against the route’s closure and was on its last passenger train,

will travel on the first train from Galashiels.

In a speech in the town, the former Liberal Democrat MP is expected to say: “The loss of the railway in 1969 was the saddest disappointment in my 50 years in parliament and I am simply delighted we are here today to create an exciting new chapter in Borders history.”
