Scope and Content St Andrews Station from west, St Andrews, Fife This was the second railway station in St Andrews, built in 1887 for the opening of the Anstruther & St Andrews Railway, which provided a through-route, along the north shore of the Forth, to Edinburgh and Glasgow. The first station had been on the eastern outskirts of the town, and opened in 1852. This shows the station from the west end, with a diesel railcar set on the Leuchars-St Andrews service. The footbridge at the far end was served by a luggage hoist. The platform is of the 'island' type, popular in the 1880s and 1890s, as it was economical in terms of staffing levels. Passenger services round the Fife coast to Leven were withdrawn in 1964, but services to Leuchars lasted until 1969. This station was then demolished and the cutting through the town was subsequently filled in. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
