Scope and Content Cupar Station, Station Road, Cupar, Fife This railway station was built in 1847 by the Edinburgh & Northern Railway to serve the county town of Fife. It was probably designed by David Bell, architect, on a lavish scale and in the Italianate style fashionable for railway buildings in the 1840s. This shows the centre of the north-bound platform building, with booking office and waiting room on the ground floor, and the agent's house on the first floor. The low-pitched roofs and open eaves are typical of 1840s Italianate style. This is the finest surviving pre-1850 railway station in Scotland. The goods facilities included a granary and coal drops, both now converted into offices. The south-bound platform is reached by a three-arched overbridge with a segregated footpath for passengers.
