Borders Railway Project: Newtongrange to Eskbank

The section of railway from Newtongrange to Eskbank includes two of the lines iconic structures. The first being Newbattle viaduct a structure which has been incorporated into the logo for the new Borders Railway. The Victorian viaduct is the most imposing structure along the whole of the line and it will be great to see trains running across it once more. The second structure is the new viaduct which carries the railway across Hardengreen roundabout, not as ecstatically pleasing as the old viaduct in my view but still an impressive piece of civil engineering. The railway runs through what is now a suburban landscape exemplified by two new stations in fairly close proximity to each other.
