Cover : paperback
Price : £10.95

The author first ‘discovered’ the Glencorse branch in the summer of 1963, while exploring the district by means of a recently acquired bicycle and the local Ordnance Survey map. The Glencorse line was one of several branches which ran south-west from the northern end of the North British Railway’s ‘Waverley Route’. It remains unique that it was the last to be completed, the first to lose its passenger service and has outlasted all of them in continuous use, including the Waverley Route itself, by a considerable margin. Although the branch was just over eight miles long, it has never featured prominently in the railway press. It has a story worth telling, and the author covers its history together with details of the various industries it served.

A5 format, 176 pages, more than 160 photographs / maps / plans etc.
