New official web site for the Borders Railway

Network Rail has launched a striking new web site for the Borders Railway on http://www.bordersrailway.co.uk/. Amongst the interesting snippets to be found are:

  • The Borders Railway will be the longest new domestic railway to be constructed in Britain for over 100 years [showing the tremendous scale of achievement, completely ignored by sceptics and critics like The Scotsman]
  • Trains will run every half hour at peak times [our italics] – perhaps a new opening to create more paths for tourist charter trains rather than the evenings and Sundays-only windows of opportunity in the timetable specification to date?
  • Journey times between Tweedbank and Edinburgh will take “less than one hour” [suggesting we need to keep up the pressure for the 55 minutes commitment made in 2009].

  1. I have looked at Network Rail new web site for the Borders Railway on http://www.bordersrailway.co.uk/. I found it very interested with all the information, equipment that was used to lay the track from Airdrie – Bathgate railway line, hope that the will show in the future there lay-out of each railway station on the Border Railway as they did on the Network Rail website for the Airdrie – Bathgate as they went through the producing the railway line, but leaves room around each station to grows if found with extra people going to the stations, leaving the stations. The main problem would be with persons getting use to sound of the trains during the day, nights time as this has been found out after the railway line has been provide in the future.

  2. I see on the website is the news of the sleeper been delivered http://www.bordersrailway.co.uk/news/first-sleepers-delivered-for-borders-railway.aspx they will but down on the track bed in the summer of 2014.
