Published in the Oakwood classic A5 format, this new title deals with the railway that served the northern parishes of Peebleshire. Joining the Peebles Railway at Leadburn, it would provide connections for passengers both to Edinburgh and to Carstairs so providing a through route from Galashiels via Peebles and Leadburn to Glasgow but these plans all fell apart when the Caledonian and North British Railway companies failed to co-operate at Dolphinton where each company had a station, engine shed and turntable, and an end-on connection but no through passenger service. The branch line closed in 1933 but the track at the northern end had not been lifted and during the Second World War the line gained a new lease of life in serving the strategic armaments depot strung out alongside it.
