Today, sees the release of this years’ second new title covering the Waverley Route and offering an interesting collection of ‘Then and Now’ comparative shots. The book has been produced by local authors Roy Perkins and Iain MacIntosh.

Few, if any, of the images contained in this book have ever been seen in print before; those used to illustrate ‘before’ are predominantly Roy’s own work, whilst Iain conducted an extensive comparative survey to provide corresponding ‘after’ shots, often in the face of mud, over-friendly livestock and electric fences!

Having received my own copy, I can confirm that this is a good, informative read and will appeal to both the hardened Waverlite and interested amateurs!


The book costs £14.99 and can be purchased directly from the Waverley Route Heritage Association via their website; (

Please buy direct from the association and help to finance the rebuilding of the Border Union Railway between Whitrope and (initially) Riccarton Junction.



About maxstafford60093

Scotsman in exile. Lover of Scotland's railways, land, people and culture. Always got an ear for new and interesting music. Politically of the left and most definitely repelled by the shallow and narcissistic. An unlikely jazz-cat mod rocker with punk tendencies; a bit 1968, a bit 1977 with a distracting overdub of 1958... Most often found outdoors with my four legged buddy!
