Pupils across the Borders have a chance to win a return trip on the new Borders Railway golden ticket train on Saturday, September 5.

Scottish Borders Council has commissioned local supplier Cocoa Black to produce a limited-edition chocolate bar to mark the occasion, supported by ScotRail, and from August 24-28, commemorative chocolate bars will be given to pupils in all 72 primary and secondary schools throughout the Borders with one per school containing a lucky golden ticket.

The draw is part of a series of school projects taking place to make youngsters children aware of the significance of the return of the railway to the Borders.
