Completed by the North British
Railway as a territorial excursion into England, the Border Counties
line soon settled into a sleepy rural existence that lasted for nearly a
century, a local lifeline that is still fondly remembered.
Some of the route has been wiped out after the building of the Kielder reservoir scheme and associated works.
This book is a welcome addition to material covering the branch lines
of Northumberland in general and the Border Counties line from Hexham
to Riccarton Junction.
