The 3.46pm arrival from Edinburgh approaches Melrose behind an unidentified BRCW Type 2 on 13th April 1963. The Spaven family made an annual pilgrimage from their Edinburgh home to the famous rugby sevens taking place in the background, but the photographer had a habit of slipping away to watch the trains!
