This unique film documents the return of the railway from Edinburgh to the Scottish Borders following its closure in 1969. It's a fascinating account of how the area got its railway back, following the "Beeching Cuts". We look at the history of the original Waverley Route and talk to key people involved in the campaign to fight for its return. including Madge Elliot MBE and Lord David Steel.
With the help of exclusive access and video footage we take you on a journey right through to the Royal Opening in September 2015 at Tweedbank when Her Majesty The Queen performed the official duties.
Thanks to CineRail we include historic footage of the Waverley Route from over 50 years ago and show you the extraordinary effort put in to build the longest new domestic railway in Britain for over 100 years. It is a fast-moving and fascinating film which will entertain, inform and even surprise you.
