“Just a collection of building sites”
Review of Borders Railway

Borders Railway
Ranked #1 of 18 things to do in Galashiels
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 September 2013

I really wouldn't call this an attraction, just a collection of 'works in progress'. I imagine that even an avid enthusiast would struggle to find something here; for the rest of us then it's nice to know that there will be trains running to the Borders in several years time but that's as far as it goes.

Closed since 1969 in the Beeching cuts that closed many lines in Britain is now being reconstructed to open in 2015.
This is your one and only chance to see the construction work between Galashiels and Edinburgh.
Easy drive along the A7 which follows most of the route and you can easily see what is happening on the line.
Not to be missed!

I walk part of this "sight" in Galashiels every day with my dog. It will be 2015 before the railway actually exists and the trains start to run so it is not much of an attraction yet I'm afraid
