Whitrope Heritage Centre & Border Union Railway opening dates 2012

With 2011 almost over it’s time to look towards next year, already promising to be fantastic as we celebrate the 150th anniversary of the first passenger services over the original Waverley Route on 1st July 2012.

The 2012 opening dates for the WHC & BUR are now online, available at our sister site for the Border Union Railway Company, link here:

Would all our volunteers (and any prospective new volunteers) also please note that we have uploaded a blank roster on the password protected section of the new BURC site. As well as the usual hosts for the heritage centre, we’re on the search for drivers, guards, station staff and track inspectors to cover our proposed passenger train operations next summer. If you wish to be considered for training in any of these roles and can commit to specific dates on the roster, please drop us a mail on and we’ll be in touch in due course
