Activity around the south portal of Bowshank Tunnel on 24 October 2014 seen from alongside the A7. ^Slab track^ has already been laid through the 200m tunnel (provided as ^passive provision^ for possible future electrification). The double track route through the tunnel is part of a 6.4km dynamic passing loop on the new Borders Railway. [See image 49398]
