Bowshank Tunnel

Activity around the south portal of Bowshank Tunnel on 24 October 2014 seen from alongside the A7. 'Slab track' has already been laid through the 200m tunnel (provided as 'passive provision' for possible future electrification). The double track route through the tunnel is part of a 6.4km dynamic passing loop on the new Borders Railway. See image 49398
