Class 380 EMU at Drem on its first day
Rail Action Group East of Scotland


Aims of RAGES

To improve the rail service between Edinburgh, Dunbar and Berwick upon Tweed.

To have East Linton and Reston stations re-opened for active use.

To improve the level of service to North Berwick.

To re-open the branch line from Longniddry to Haddington.

To consider the implications with regard to car parking and bicycle storage at stations between Waverley and Berwick upon Tweed.

To keep under scrutiny the standards of passenger facilities at stations between Waverley and Berwick, including North Berwick, and to draw the attention of the relevant bodies to shortcomings which arise.

The group, being environmentally minded, will actively strive to encourage rail travel within its geographical area.


Reston's New Station - Progress of Construction

The survey work has been completed in support of the station design submissions which is meant to be submitted early spring 2020.

Tom Dickson, our Membership Secretary, has undertaken to photograph the progress during construction and RAGES would like to recognise his many visits to Reston with his camera to make this record.

Selected images will be shown here with the latest at the top of this web page and captions below each photograph.
