Commemorating 50 years since closure – Part 1

Right up to the closure of the Waverley Route demonstrations and petitions were organised in an attempt to fight the closure. Leading this fight was Madge Elliot from Hawick, seen in Bruce McCartney’s photo below at Downing Street on 18th December 1968, with the Earl of Dalkeith and Sir David Steel before they handed in the petition against the proposed closure.


Listen to Madge describing the Downing Street visit on the following audio file.
