The Newburgh Train Station Campaign

WE ARE CURRENTLY SETTING UP A NEW WEBSITE AT https://www.newburghtrain.com.

PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT THIS NEW HOMEPAGE. MORE PAGES AND CONTENT WILL BE ADDED AND WHEN THE WHOLE SITE IS READY THIS PRESENT SITE WILL BE RETIRED.

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 and the North Fife area.  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 and, together with its area of North Fife and Tayside, contribute fully in a modern economy.

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.

It has the full backing of Fife Council and SEStran, the regional transport partnership and has completed a full STAG transport appraisal that has built a strongly evidenced business case for a station.

Join us in ensuring that this becomes reality by taking part in the campaign to bring a rail station back to Newburgh.

The Station At Newburgh Before Closing In 1955 For Passengers

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

All Newburgh Needs Now Is One Simple, Modular, Short Length, Low Cost Platform

Newburgh Town Now With A Busy Railway Line Running Right Through It That Could Connect Newburgh And Its Area With The Rest Of Scotland

If It Had A Station
