Scope and Content Bridge at 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, and was designed, probably by David Bell, architect, on a lavish scale and in the Italianate style fashionable for railway buildings in the 1840s. This shows the bridge linking the north-bound (right) and south-bound platforms. This carries a footpath for passengers as well as a vehicular carriageway and associated pavements. The sleeper crossing was for the use of station staff. 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. Repairs were carried out in 2001. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
