Scope and Content Cupar Station, Cupar, Fife Cupar Station was probably built by David Bell of Edinburgh. It was opened in 1847 by Edinburgh Northern Railway Company and was on the Inverkeithing-Dundee route. The complex is regarded as a fine example of a large early station. Its design was influenced by the Renaissance architecture of either Italy or England, so that some experts describe it as 'Italianate' and others as 'Tudor' in style. Historical styles like those based on early Renaissance architecture became popular in the 19th-century because they were supposed to reflect national, rather than Classical, architectural traditions.
