Borthwick Bank Signal Box

On 26th October, Railscot contributor Bill Jamieson looks over the remains of Borthwick Bank signal box, which closed in July 1968 - the same month that Transport Minister Richard Marsh announced his consent for closure of the entire Waverley Route. At this point the solum was three tracks wide, comprising the double-track main line plus the headshunt for Borthwick Bank tip (located behind the camera).
