Borders Railway welcomes half a million passengers

The Borders Railway has welcomed its 500,000th passenger in a little over four months of service.

This puts the popular service over 20% ahead of forecast, with passenger numbers expected to continue to exceed expectations throughout the rest of the year. The £353 million railway, which reopened in September 2015, connects the Borders and Midlothian with the Scottish rail network.
