Melrose station in 1975 looking east.
Bill Roberton [//1975]

Melrose looking to Tweedbank showing the footpath running by the A6091. Plenty of space here of track relaying! There was a very long siding to the right - often full of carriages - and the approach to the goods yard came off to the left here originally running round the down platform to re-join the line (the connection at the east end was later severed). The hillside to the left was beloved of generations of postcard and railway photographers.

In its initial layout, four tracks passed between the platforms, the two tracks up the middle allowing pass through.

Melrose station photographed in June 1985 during its wilderness years. The view looks east towards Ravenswood Junction and St Boswells. Since 1985 the station building has been restored [see image 13774] and is now far more visible as a bypass road has been built immediately to the south of the old trackbed. The road joins the A68 at Ravenswood Roundabout, almost on top of the old junction.
