Lauder Light Railway :: Shared Description
The railway opened in 1901 after the Light Railways Act 1896. The act allowed an easier planning process to fill gaps in the rural railway network, as long as the rolling stock was of restricted weight and number of axles. Many of the small railways opened just in time for competition from motor coaches and few survived for long. The Lauder carried passengers for just 30 years.
Now the section of trackbed between Middletoun to Threeburnford above Oxton is signposted as a walk and is a very attractive easy trip on a good surface.
