Borders rail will improve access to mining museum.

The Scottish mining museum at Newtongrange will benefit from the reopening of the Waverley route. The museum, based at the former Lady Victoria colliery is adjacent to the trackbed of the Waverley route and is near to the site of the proposed Newtongrange railway station. Getting to Newtongrange at the moment is only possible by car or bus, but having a railway station nearby will enable visitors from other parts of the country to get to Newtongrange far more easily. This should hopefully bring up visitor numbers and increase revenue for the museum.
The Waverley route reopening is one of Scotland's most high profile railway projects and is considered vital to growing the economy in the Lothian and Borders region.
