The former Melrose station looking east from the former up platform ... in the bucketing rain.

A remarkably large amount of the line from Tweedbank to St Boswells remains intact, bar a few missing bridges and infilled cuttings. The A6091 has not entirely obliterated the trackbed, much of which is now a footpath.

Scene at Melrose in the 1960s as a Brush type 4 pulls in with an up Waverley route service. The up side here is still largely intact, although much of the former railway route back towards Galashiels has now been replaced by the A6091. [See image 5967]

Thanks to its location in the lee of the Eildons, sunrise comes late to Melrose in the middle of winter and even at 10:20 on the bright morning of Saturday 4th January 1969, the station in still in shadow as BR Scottish Grand Tour No. 6, hauled by Brush Type 4 No. D1974, makes a brief stop there.
