The Berwickshire Railway ran for 42 miles linking St. Boswells on the Waverley Route to Berwick on the East Coast Main Line with the cross country route diverging at Reston initially to serve Duns.

The line ran through the rich agricultural area known as the Merse of Berwickshire. Despite premature closure as a through route due to flood damage in 1948, both ends lingered on for goods trains until the mid 1960s. Much of the route remains visible to this day.
