Description

This is the East Coast main Line crossing of England/Scotland Border between Burnmouth and Berwick-Upon-Tweed.

Just to the south the Marshall Meadows Deviation took the railway slightly inland to take it safely away from cliffs above the North Sea.

The border crossing is marked by a fine sign on either side of the railway for railway travellers to see, as they flash by.
