Lockerbie in Dumfries and Galloway has long been an important stop for people travelling through this part of southwest Scotland. In the 18th century it was a staging post for coaches on the route between Glasgow and London, and in the early 19th century, renowned road builder Thomas Telford brought his Carlisle to Glasgow road through the town. Trains to Lockerbie first arrived in 1847 when the Caledonian Railway opened. Today Lockerbie station sits on the West Coast Main Line, with hourly services to Manchester Airport and trains every two hours to Glasgow Central and Edinburgh. There's also one direct train per day (apart from Sundays) to each of Birmingham New Street, London Euston and Crewe. It usually takes an hour to Glasgow and around 70 minutes to Edinburgh. Lockerbie itself is a small town, and its villagey centre is just a minute or two from the station.
