Campaigner Madge Elliot MBE from Hawick visited the Scottish Parliament today as her story was revealed as part of a new exhibition.
Madge Elliot was at the forefront of the campaign to reopen the Waverley line, which lead to one train being named after her in 2015. She also founded the Campaign for Borders Rail.
John Lamont MSP said the exhibition pays tribute to the hard work that brought back part of the Waverley line.
The Campaign for Borders Rail (CBR) has welcomed the official signing of the transfer of responsibility for the construction of the Borders Railway.
They said that now the signing is complete, Network Rail can officially begin the construction phase of the Borders Railway Project which will re-establish passenger railway services from Edinburgh through Midlothian to Tweedbank in the Scottish Borders for the first time in over 40 years.
