The Newburgh Train Station Campaign

Newburgh Train Station Group present the community campaign to reopen a station at Newburgh in Fife to reconnect it with the railway that runs through its heart and to vital access north, south, east and west.

The case for this, both socially and economically, is stronger than ever as the railway running through Newburgh carries more and more trains as demand everywhere rises.

It’s time to put something back into Newburgh.  Like many places a lot has disappeared from Newburgh.  Whole hill sides for stone.  A whole set of industries, the lino works and associated trades and workshops, port facilities, fishing and packing.  Newburgh now does a lot for itself to keep itself going to adapt and survive.  It is the largest town on a railway line in Scotland that has no station since its closure in 1955.  It is surely time to put a station back. To join the town up with the network in Scotland so it can be a thriving place again.

The lino works in Newburgh closed in 1980 and were levelled and grassed over

The Newburgh Train Station Campaign has total community backing in Newburgh and its catchment area, including Abernethy. It has cross-party support in the Scottish Parliament and in the local authorities that serve Fife and Perth and Kinross.

Join us in ensuring that feasibility becomes reality by taking part in the Newburgh Train Station Campaign.

The current site is denuded of most of its platform structures and buildings. The track is still there, carrying trains daily and more frequently than ever.
