Selkirk Junction

Simon Longland - whose 1992 motor-bike trek to survey all the surviving structures of the Waverley Route started the process which should culminate in the 2015 Borders Railway re-opening - admires the surviving steam deflectors below the pedestrian footbridge spanning the railway at Langlee at the south east end of Galashiels, on 2nd April. Given the design of the bridge, and the steam-related deflector requirement, this adornment must have been created in the early to mid-1960s. Beyond the bridge, a stretch of the old solum has been infilled and will need to be re-excavated. See image 46466
