After many years of scepticism, negativity and outright opposition to the Borders Railway from The Scotsman, it’s a pleasure to read the positive coverage today in a large feature by stablemate Edinburgh Evening News. Headed ‘It’s on the right lines’ the double-page story leaves the reader in no doubt that the railway will have a massively positive impact on the Borders and Midlothian.
There’s also strong backing for the project in the paper’s editorial, which concludes that “when we see the diggers in action we have the comfort of knowing that the results will bring a real boon to the area.”
So, how long now before a change of heart at Scotsman Towers!?
