Lines Served

This is a through station on the line between Newcraighall and Edinburgh Waverley, which runs approximately north/south through the station. This service used to continue to Dunblane, but is now part of the Fife route. The train we caught was going to Cowdenbeath.


A single platform runs north-south, with the track lying west of the platform and a wire fence along the east side with gaps for the two entrances/exits. The second track, to the west of the line under consideration, is used by other services which do not serve this station.


There is stairs access between Brunstane Road South and the station via the north entrance and level access from Gilberstoun via the south entrance. We therefore believe the station is accessible to Guide Dog users and to wheelchairs. Please note, however, that this is an unmanned station, though there is a help point beside (south of) the shelter in the middle of the platform. There are also RNIB REACT beacons on the platform and beside the two entrances.
