Edinburgh - Tweedbank

Join us for this unique journey along a railway that was thought to be lost to the history books forever. 2015 saw the opening of the new ‘Borders Railway’ from Edinburgh to Tweedbank, along the northern section of the old ‘Waverley’ Route, which once ran between the Scottish capital and Carlisle. After controversially being closed in 1969, this remote region of Scotland would once again echo to the sound of a Steam Engine climbing the steep gradients, for the first time in 50 years.

This program includes footage from on the footplate with the locomotives crew, and with live sound recorded from the locomotive, we bring the action right to you.

This program also features commentary (including driver's commentary), titles & locations.
