On the footplate of the Union of South Africa at Tweedbank Station
The steam locomotive had hauled vintage carriages down from Edinburgh and the friendly crew were allowing people to come up to the footplate. The Union of South Africa was built at Doncaster in 1937 and is only one of six remaining LNER Class A4ís. For a view of the steam engine in open countryside near Ferniehirst, see NT4442 : A steam special on the Borders Railway near Ferniehirst.
