Description:

This short railway, just under three miles in length, linked the fishing port of Eyemoith in the old Scottish Borders county of Berwickshire with the East Coast Main Line at Burnmouth. Eyemouth was the only station on the branch. The line crossed an impressive viaduct over the River Eye which was damaged by floosing in 1948, the event regarded as the cause of the ultimate closure of the branch line. This 16 chapters in this book include proposals, the building of the line, the route, operations, depots and locamotives, the fishing industry, freight traddice, accidents and the remains.
