The Southern Reporter says it all

The big announcement on 6th November generated a wide variety of media coverage – from the predictably downbeat Scotsman,through an alarmingly negative BBC (giving far too much prominence to the narrow and distorted perspective of John Lamont MSP) to generally positive coverage in the Border Telegraph, Guardian, Herald and perhaps above all the Southern Reporter. The paper’s news story recorded Cllr David Parker’s tribute to the work of CBR over the years, and in its editorial, headlined  ‘Time to get on board and ensure rail link’s success’, concluded that:

“…in the three years remaining before the Waverley Line opens for business, let’s be working together to ensure it is on track and successful from the off, because if it isn’t, we will only have ourselves to blame – and that includes the naysayers.”

We couldn’t say it better ourselves!

  1. We any good news for the Border Railway line, there is always those against it. Because it will be good for the area in the future to bring back trains for the area, possibility in the future of line going all the way to Carlisle.
