#TSNews – #Update Sept.06: Trains have returned to the Scottish Borders after 46 years with the opening of the longest new domestic railway built in Britain for over a century.

The new Borders Railway runs between Tweedbank and Edinburgh and was built at a cost of £294m.

Hundreds of people queued up at Tweedbank station on Sunday morning to be the first passengers on board.
Some arrived at 05:00 to secure their place in the line, and had travelled from as far south as Kent.

The old Waverley Line through the region shut in 1969.
