Galashiels [1st]

An NCL lorry in Galashiels station forecourt in Spring 1971. At this stage, two years after closure, much of the physical infrastructure of the railway remained intact and BR provided a road-based parcels service from Gala depot. Today the view is unrecognisable, with new roads, Asda Supermarket and light industry swallowing almost all of the former railway footprint. However, eagle-eyed observers will spot that the columns at the station entrance have survived as the last evidence that there was once a railway here see image 45617.
