Waverley Route: Battle for the Borders Railway

Waverley Route: Battle for the Borders Railway

Description:

The main-line railway from Edinburgh to Carlisle, known throughout history as 'the Waverley Route' ended its 107 year service in January 1969 under the 'Beeching Axe'. In a remarkable reversal of fortune in 2015 just over a third of the line re-opened, reborn as the Borders Railway and re-connecting Edinburgh, Galashiels and Tweedbank by train - the longest line to be built in Scotland since 1901. This third edition of the Waverley Route covers the royal re-opening of the line, the subsequent controversies surrounding it and the impact the line has had on the borders.
