The shortcut between Galafoot Lane and Woodstock Avenue, Galashiels, crosses both the Gala Water and the Waverley trackbed via this pedestrian bridge. View north over the trackbed towards Woodstock Avenue in February 2014. Note the steam exhaust deflectors still attached to the underside of the bridge. [See image 28753]

With less than half a mile to go before joining the Tweed, the Gala Water flows past the surviving northern abutment of the railway bridge that once carried the Selkirk branch across the river. Looking north west towards Galashiels station on 8 February 2015 from the pedestrian footbridge off Galafoot Lane. The recently laid tracks of the Borders Railway run between the mesh fences.
