Built & run entirely by volunteers, the Border Union Railway is the operational section of the old Waverley Route, heading both north & south from Whitrope Heritage Centre.
Whitrope Heritage Centre is based in two old railway carriages at Whitrope Siding, just off the B6399 between Hawick & Newcastleton.
Containing a vast selection of old railway relics from the Borders’ railways and many old photographs & a display of how the railways were built, together with a train journey on the Border Union Railway, the heritage centre is the ideal way to spend a leisurely day.
Adjoining the exhibition coach is a buffet coach where you can unwind with a cup of tea in the comfort of our old 1960s carriage.
We welcome educational and group visits – please contact us with your requirements.
