Last chance to send a parcel by rail to Kelso! With Beeching's Bloomer chalked above the buffers of the Standard Class 2 locomotive no 78048, the final (6.35pm) train from Berwick to Kelso and St Boswells is prepared for departure on Saturday 13th June 1964. Latterly just two trains a day in each direction traversed the entire 34 mile branch, supplemented by a further three between Kelso and St Boswells.
