Network rail have organised a series of drop in sessions for communities along the proposed Borders railway line - from Edinburgh to the Scottish Borders. They are to allow residents to view the plans and speak to the Network rail team.
Drop in sessions have started taking place for people who live along the route of the new borders railway.
Work to build the line will start early next year after a deal was signed with Network Rail. Residents are getting the chance to meet members of the project team and view their plans. The railway is due to be completed by summer 2015. Network Rail says disruption will be kept to a minimum.
