To mark the event on Friday, pupils from also held an exhibitin about the history of the Borders Railway. With the construction of the railway taking place right on their doorstep, they have spent the past six months exploring the changes the train line has brought to their community, both now and when it was first operational. The result of their work was displayed in a dynamic and colourful exhibition in the Stow Town Hall.

“We have been working on a whole school project about the railway which is called Lives on the Line. Each class has focussed on a different person and found out about what their lives were like and how they were connected with the trains,” said Iain Houston (P6), Railway Representative. team.
