Stow: Stow station, closed with the entire Waverley Route in 1969, reopened for the Borders Line in 2015, seen here on Sunday, 15th May 2016. Sadly, the building has not been revived for railway use. Rebuilding of the line at this location involved the demolition of a virtually brand new house that had been built on the track bed.

Stow: A Boxing Day mist moves in from the south at Stow during the afternoon of 26 December 2014. The temporary crossing created here for construction traffic is strangely reminiscent of the barrow crossing that once existed at the other end of the station see image [[23820]].
