Coldstream Railway Station (Cornhill-on-Tweed)

This station was built in the 19th century and was originally owned by the Newcastle and Berwick Railway. It changed hands several times until becoming the property of British Railways in 1948. The station was designed by Benjamin Green and actually stood in Cornhill rather than Coldstream which lay on the north side of the river. There would have been a coal depot, turntable, signal box, crane and weighbridge at the station. The station closed to passengers on 15 June 1964 and to goods on 29 March 1965.
