Newcraighall South Junction

On a pre-construction walk along the route of the Borders Railway on 9th October 2012, a view from high above the first cutting which will need to be excavated south of Newcraighall. Looking north, a strip of woodland at the north west end of the former Millerhill Down Yard has already been cut back. The new line�s most northerly dynamic loop will revert to single track south of the red buffer stop of the Newcraighall turnback siding, which can just be seen in the distance.
