There are six return trips Monday to Saturday operated by Borders Buses.
The town of Berwick has changed hands between England and Scotland many times during its colourful history. Its bus history is equally varied. In the golden days of bus operation, United Automobile and Eastern Scottish jointly operated the town services. Their successors, Northumbria and Lowland, continued to work in harmony until the early 1990's when competition broke out. Eventually Lowland (First) withdrew leaving Arriva Northumbria. Although it appeared they had won the battle, they had in fact lost the war as they decided to give up the town service in October 2002. Local Scottish operator Perryman has now assumed control of the routes and six of Arriva's Metroriders. The final skirmish?
We are very excited about the progress of the retired 1938 island train we have saved and restoring back to her former glory as an important part of island history. This will join our very popular yellow bus stop cafe and offer a unique dining experience with sitting on the train and soaking up the atmosphere of days gone by with a very informative museum to pay homage to the great service these beautiful trains provided.
Holliers Farm lies between Sandown and Newport.
Tomorrow we go back north.
And a Truly AWFUL Advert
