Name and dates

Roxburgh (1850-1964)

Opened on the Kelso Branch (North British Railway).

Opened on the Jedburgh Railway.


Description

This was a three platform junction station.

This was the junction between the Kelso Branch (North British Railway) and the Jedburgh Railway.

The main station house, on the eastbound main line platform, remains in use as a house. The building is two storey, similar to that former at Kelso and several other sites on the Edinburgh and Hawick Railway. The platform waiting rooms were demolished.

The platforms were located at the east end of the site with quite a complicated track layout to the west.

To the east, on the line to Kelso was the Roxburgh Viaduct, which still stands.
