A study of the Borders Railway's second year has shown its 'sustained, positive and measurable impact', according to Transport Minister Humza Yousaf.

The first houses in the proposed new town of Shawfair are just going up, but they are nowhere near Shawfair station. Mind you, nothing is near Shawfair station which in addition seems deliberately hard to get to. The upside is that you'll never have people in the way of your shot. A Tweedbank service calls on the afternoon of 16th February 2018.
