Pease Lye

The loading bank at Pease Lye is still visible under a pile of ballast. Also known as Pease Siding or goods station it is located on the steep climb up from Cockburnspath towards Grantshouse in Berwickshire. A good place to have a level piece of track into which to shunt and allow your wagons to stand without worrying that they will roll back towards the mainline: that is what a lye originally was in the coal mines. Then it became a transshipment siding on surface railways especially on the Glasgow and South Western Railway. This one was used for agricultural produce and is now used by Permanent Way staff for access. see image 68156
