So the Borders Railway link will happen according to Cllr Jim Brown – I wonder who will be able to afford to use it.
A comparable route distance-wise is Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire to London Marylebone. An anytime day return costs £28.60 and an annual season ticket £3,520.
If it is not us as council tax payers that will be paying, who is going to subsidise the line?
I’ll stick to my car or the bus should I wish to go to Edinburgh thank you very much.
