The head of a transport body has said there is 'great merit' in plans costing up to £37m to reopen three disused stations in south west Scotland. Andrew Wood chairs the South West Scotland Transport Partnership (Swestrans). It has been looking at the potential of bringing the sites in Beattock, Thornhill and Eastriggs back into use. It said a public consultation had found a 'high level of interest and expectation' in the proposals.
A transport body chief says the move - which could cost up to £37m - would be of "real benefit" to the economy.
