The old and the new at Tweedmouth in 1964. A view showing the distinctively modern Tweedmouth box and behind it the branch line to Kelso and St Boswells. Photograph taken on 13 June 1964 from the last ever St Boswells-Berwick train as it heads north towards Berwick following run-round in Tweedmouth station. Amazingly, the route was still double track between Tweedmouth and Kelso, despite carrying just two passenger trains a day in each direction and probably no more than one freight.
