A Borders railway station that closed more than half a century ago is set to re-open within the next five years.
Reston station, which sits on the East Coast Mainline, fell victim to the infamous Beeching cuts of the mid-1960s.
Campaigners have long been calling for its re-instatement and say the nearby communities of Eyemouth, Coldingham and St Abbs and the wider area would benefit from a new train connection.
Network Rail is now taking forward design proposals for a re-built station on the old site.
“We’re working closely with Transport Scotland to develop proposals for a new station at Reston and expect to deliver the facility during our next five-year funding cycle which begins in April this year.”

The re-opening of the station will undoubtedly improve visitor’s accessibility to the coast.
