Wanlockhead and Leadhills train becomes commuter service

A narrow gauge railway is being used to transport commuters between the villages of Wanlockhead and Leadhills.

The closure of the B797, for resurfacing work, would have meant a 50-mile detour.

Quick thinking train enthusiasts produced a regular timetable and have recruited locals to help run the service.

Local commuters and those behind the scheme in the Southern Uplands have been telling BBC Scotland's Willie Johnston how they have been making the most of the replacement transport service.
