Station. Excerpt: Riccarton Junction, in the county of
Roxburghshire in the Scottish Borders, was a railway village and
station. In its heyday it had 118 residents and its own school,
post office and grocery store. The station marked the junction of
the Border Counties Railway branch to Hexham with the North British
Railway's (NBR's) Border Union Railway (also known as the Waverley
Route). Remarkably there was no road access until a forest track
was built in 1963, all access until then being by rail. The branch
line from Riccarton Junction to Kielder and Hexham was closed 15
October 1956. The Waverley Route was closed on 6 January 1969. At

panels with a view of starting heritage railway activity. ... More:
