Slow Train to Riccarton 1

A documentary from 1986 looking back at the Border Counties Railway, which ran from Hexham to the remote Riccarton Junction over the Scottish border.

This line was closed to passengers in 1956 and freight services continued over part of the line until 1963. Part of the route now lies beneath Kielder Water.

There is more about Riccarton Junction, and many photographs, on the Disused Stations site.
