The Borders Railway reopened to passengers on the 6th September, 2015. Three days later, on the 9th September, the line was officially opened by the Queen.
To mark the anniversary, BBC News published this article about the impact of the Borders Railway on the village of Stow! We’re delighted that one of our board members, Grace Murray, was interviewed for the article, and our Station House project got a mention, too!
"This has always been a fantastic place to live and the railway has re-energised our community" https://t.co/2iOZtRbgnQ— BBC Scotland News (@BBCScotlandNews) September 9, 2020
Network Rail also commissioned a series of videos to mark the anniversary. This one, which Stow features heavily, highlights the impact of the railway, and recalls the campaign to ensure that Stow had a station on the reopened line.
