*NBR trains from Longtown to Gretna ran into Gretna (NB) and then reversed clear of Gretna Jct. NBR and proceeded north across Border Union Jct. on to the CR main line. They called at Gretna (CR) to set down only (not advertised in Bradshaws 1908) and then proceeded to Gretna Green (GSW). The return workings involved the same procedure in reverse, but the stop at Gretna (CR), still unadvertised, was to pick up and set down. For a more detailed account see: RHRGB Vol 6 Scotland - The Lowlands and the Borders p146/7 .
