Galashiels [1st]

The 'Scottish Region Grand Tour No. 6' is about to depart from Galashiels at 10.15 on 4th January 1969. This view looking north-west from the train is utterly unrecognisable today with the houses on the skyline forming the only man-made features which still survive, and these will be totally obscured by foliage in summer. Station Brae Bridge, designed by consulting engineers Blyth & Blyth in the 1930s, carries the road to Melrose over the station.
