Fountainhall

Down among the daisies. Standing in a field at Fountainhall in June 2017 looking south east along the Gala Water. The lattice girder bridge once carried the old road, linking the A7 (off to the left) with the village (beyond the trees) passing over a level crossing in front of the abandoned station house in the background (see 28512). The train is Edinburgh bound, in this case one of the services running non-stop over the 21 miles between Galashiels and Gorebridge. Part of the bridge carrying the new road across the line and into the village is just visible on the far right.
