Country Railway Routes

Hexham to Hawick

The Border Counties Railway

by Roger Darsley & Dennis Lovett

Completed by the North British Railway as a territorial excursion into England, the Border Counties line soon settled into a sleepy rural existence that lasted for nearly a century, a local lifeline that is still fondly remembered.

 

Reviews:

'The book is a welcome addition to material covering the branch lines of Northumberland in general and the Border Counties line from Hexham to Riccarton Junction.'
(Points - Newsletter of the Historical Model Railway Society, July 2012)
