Scene at Newtongrange on the Borders Railway on 24 October 2014, one week after the passage of the tracklaying train. Approaching into the sun is Freightliner 66605 at the head of a ballast train, with 66602 bringing up the rear. The train is passing below the A7 and through the site of what will become Newtongrange station. The station would welcome its first fare paying passengers less than 11 months later, on Sunday 6 September 2015 see image 52489. The bright sunshine is also illuminating the wind turbines at the top of the picture, which are part of Earlseat Wind Farm in Fife, approximately 18 miles to the north.
