Borders railway campaigner Madge Elliot honoured

A woman who campaigned against the closure of the Borders railway in the 1960s, and who fought for its reopening, will become a permanent fixture on the line.

Rail campaigner Madge Elliot was in Edinburgh to see a train named in her honour.

The Waverley line is due to reopen in September.

BBC Scotland's Cameron Buttle has been to meet Madge Elliot and her namesake.
