Old Photograph Cutting The Sod Light Railway Lauder Scotland

Old photograph of the Countess of Lauderdale cutting the first sod of the Light Railway in Lauder in the Scottish Borders 27 miles South East of Edinburgh, Scotland. The Lauder Light Railway was a railway line opened in 1901 to connect the remote agricultural settlement of Lauder in Berwickshire with the main line of the Waverley Route railway at Fountainhall. Traffic was never heavy and bus competition led to closure to passengers in 1932.
