An 1840 report considered a western route from Newcastle to Edinburgh via Carlisle preferable to an east coast line, but nevertheless a railway was opened to Berwick in 1850. Major engineering works on the line included the Robert Stephenson-designed Royal Border Bridge over the Tweed. This detailed study of the railway traces its genesis and development, and includes appendices with route and gradient diagrams, distance tables and information about signalling installations.
