Darnick Siding

Location type

Sidings


Name and dates

Darnick Siding (1849-1969)

Opened on the Edinburgh and Hawick Railway (North British Railway).


Description

These sidings were approached by reversal from the southbound line.

The rather fine bridge carrying the line over Lye Road has been removed.

The A6091 uses much of the trackbed, at least the northbound track. It also crosses the Lye Road, a little to the south and overlapping with the site of the original bridge.

The site of the sidings is now occupied by housing.
