There has been pressure for nearly 20 years to re-open Reston station on the East Coast Main Line. It lies on a bus route linking Eyemouth and Duns, and the village has been poised for residential expansion pending the construction of the station. The Scottish Government made a commitment to the project, and Scotrail produced a draft timetable, which would be by extension of local services between Edinburgh and Dunbar, while the Scottish Borders Council committed a proportion of the funds required, and also committed to local development. It was announced that the station would open and services begun in late 2016. Nothing has happened, however, except that the commitment to construct it has been transferred to Network Rail, which has it in its budget for 2019-2024, and Scotrail has gone back on providing services.
