Name and dates

Greenend Siding (1849-1969)

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

Description

This siding was south of Greenend Farm. The siding was on the east side of the line and reached by reversing. There was a signal box.

The siding was originally of considerable length running parallel to the line north to Greenend Farm, but was cut back to a shorter siding by the signal box. The site is now Briarlee house.

Like the siding at Tynehead, the line was located in a deep cutting and the siding, in original form, was of some length.
