The Waverley Route

The Waverley Route was the North British Railway's line between Edinburgh & Carlisle, through the Scottish Borders. Opened in two stages, between 1849 & 1862, the railway linked the Border towns of Galashiels, Melrose, St.Boswells & Hawick. It also saw one of the first preservation attempts in the country, which it was hoped would save it from closure, being run as a private venture. Follow the link to read more..


The first train steamed into the valley on the 1st of July 1862, the Waverley line between Carlisle and Edinburgh was later closed by British Rail in January 1969. The first picture on the left shows Newcastleton station.
