Hawick [2nd]

Captain Chris Smith checks out the plaque that he has just unveiled at Hawick Leisure Centre on 30th November 2018. The centre stands on the site of Hawick Station. The Jellicoe Express, which ran between Euston and Thurso, was the longest rail journey in Britain and operated during both world wars transporting mail and navy personnel. It is being commemorated with a series of plaques. Hawick, on the old Waverley Line, was a station where the Express called in one direction for coal and water and now is the only Jellico location that no longer has trains.
