Two railway lines cross the border between England and Scotland today, one on the east coast and the other on the west. But, once there were another five lines converging on the border. What happened to them? Here, in this excellently researched and illustrated book, author Alexander Mullay has chronicled the history of those forgotten railway lines once so prevalent in the area. A revised and updated edition of this seminal work on the cross-border railways, brings the story up to the 21st century.
