Tweedbank Station, Platform 2
The terminus of the new Borders Railway. A very long platform, but only one small shelter - seems a bit penny-pinching.
Tweedbank railway station
Tweedbank is the southern terminus of the recently opened (6th September 2015) Borders Railway which runs from Edinburgh Waverley. The 30 mile route follows the northern third of the former Waverley Route which ran from Edinburgh to Carlisle.

The station consists of an island platform with a track each side. The station is unstaffed (as are all stations on the line except Waverley), tickets can be purchased from a vending machine at the station and there is also a smartcard reader. Tickets can also be purchased from staff on the trains.

Eildon View is a depot adjacent to the station which is a base for train crew and other railway staff who will maintain and clean the trains which are stabled at Tweedbank overnight.

The adjacent Park & Ride car park has 235 spaces and there is a covered cycle stand which can accommodate 20 bikes. The car park and cycle stand are covered by CCTV.

The station is proving popular with tourists visiting the nearby Abbotsford House LinkExternal link and Melrose Abbey LinkExternal link .
