Galashiels [1st] (1849-1969)
Opened on the Edinburgh and Hawick Railway (North British Railway).
Note: text in square brackets is added for clarity and was not part of the location's name.
This was a three platform through station, originally covered with a large timber overall roof which was later replaced with platform canopies.
Little remains of the station today and the new Galashiels is located further north. The new line is re-aligned to the extreme north/east side of the original station.
To the south were Galashiels Goods to the south/west side of the line and Galashiels Shed to the north/east side.
Trains from Galashiels also served Peebles and Selkirk.
