The new Borders Railway will open in less than three months.
It's claimed the £300 million, 30 mile link between Edinburgh and Tweeddbank will open up the region for commuters - and bring visitors in too.
But what can these visitors expect?
Hannah McNulty reports:
Twenty-five "deserving" people from the Scottish Borders have won tickets to ride on one of the first trains of the new Borders Railway.
Residents had been asked to nominate local people, who they felt deserved a ticket because of, for example, their community work.
All of the winners will be presented with their Golden Tickets on Saturday 5 September - the day before the new Borders Railway opens to the public.
The winners are:
- Chirnside - Karen Wallace
- Darnick - Karen Smith
- Earlston - Judith Burton, Steven Reid
- Galashiels - Annika Hynes, Gladys Mein, Robert Hogarth, Tomasz Ryniecki, Lisa Scott & Nicky Jack
- Hawick - Kaymarie Hughes, Logan Kennedy, Paula Smith, Sheila Jackson, Warren Law
- Kelso - David Quarrie
- Newtown St Boswells - Shona Pringle
- Peebles - John Swanson, Julie Simpson
- Selkirk - Jan Allison, Teresa Colbert
- St Boswells - Carla How, Helen Kirkland
- Tweedbank - Lyn Riley, Moira Mitchell
- West Linton - Scott Murray
We have had a tremendous response to the Golden Ticket competition, and the selection panel had to make some difficult decisions to come up with the final list.
I look forward to welcoming all Golden Ticket recipients onto the trains on 5 September, which is going to be a historic and exciting day.”
