Riccarton Junction

The Border Counties Railway from Hexham and the Waverley route from Carlisle came together at Riccarton junction - a remote outpost boasting many facilities but no road access. A community of 30 cottages grew up around the railway. Although it was all swept away after closure, enthusiasts have dug out the up platform and laid a short length of track.
