Saughtree

Looking south past Saughtree station in 1963, with the (now-demolished) viaduct over the Dawston Burn in the distance. Had the 1990s' plans of Borders Transport Futures been successful then nowadays this view would have featured a heavy freight railway conveying military traffic from Otterburn, and timber from Kielder Forest to mills in Carlisle, Workington and Chirk.
