St Boswells

At 10:27, the sun is reflected off the front windows of St. Boswells South box, again photographed from Scottish Grand Tour No.6 on Saturday 4th January 1969. Although it had outlived the North box by almost three years, South box now only had less than twelve hours of life left, closing at 21:49 that same day once Brush Type 4 No. 1974 (it certainly had a busy day!) had left the St. Boswells South to Hawick South section on its way light engine to Carlisle to take over the 21:27 Manchester Exchange - Aberdeen newspaper train. For the remainder of the last weekend of the Waverley Route, Hawick South box would work through to Galashiels.
