Scottish Borders Railway Rambles

Borders Railway Rambles

Borders Railway Rambles Scottish Borders Railway Rambles. Between 1846 and 1901 the Borders acquired no less than eighteen individual railway routes, chief among them the Waverley line, and yet by 1969 only the East Coast main line remained. However, plenty of clues to the region's railway past still exist and railway historian Alasdair Wham has walked all of the old routes to provide a detailed account of what can still be found. Combining history book and walking guide, Borders Railway Rambles tells how the Borders' railway network developed and searches for the heritage that is left. Accompanied by detailed maps and around forty period photographs, the book is packed with facts, figures and insights and is ideal for both serious ramblers and armchair enthusiasts.
