Tweedbank Railway Station

A station with exceptionally long platforms which represents the terminus of the Borders Railway, Tweedbank Station is located on the northern edge of Tweedbank in the Scottish Borders. Built by BAM Nuttall, it opened with the line in 2015 and is run by ScotRail, with around 300,000 passengers in its first year of operation, a number which had risen to 436,232 by 2016-17. It comprises two lines alongside a central platform, but there is no facility for locomotives to run around their trains, which has proven problematic for rail tours using historic rolling stock, as a second engine is required to haul carriages on the return journey. The preceding station is Galashiels, 2¼ miles (3.5 km) to the west northwest. A park-and-ride is the only passenger facility. Abbotsford House lies a mile (1.7 km) to the west southwest, while the town of Melrose is situated a similar distance to the east southeast.
