Station


Name and dates

Walkerburn (1867-1962)

Opened on the Galashiels, Innerleithen and Peebles Railway (North British Railway).


Description

This was a single platform station on the south bank of the Tweed, connected to Walkerburn by a road bridge. The Tweedholm Mills sat on the low ground on the north bank with the village above.

The station's platform was on the north side (town site) of the single track directly west of a level crossing. The goods yard, with looped sidings and a stone built goods shed, was to the west of the station, on the south side of the line. A railway cottage was to the south and a footbridge from the platform crossed the line by the level crossing.

The station building, a single storey, was in typical North British Railway style, but in stone and brick, not timber.

The signal box, in the goods yard, became a ground frame in 1932, but signalling remained until closure.

The station building and railway cottage are now private houses and the goods shed still stands.
