The North British Railway, who in 1877 purchased the St Andrews Railway of 1852, extended the line south east from St Andrews [1st] to the then new St Andrews [2nd] in 1887 to meet the Anstruther and St Andrews Railway. The original station closed to passengers and became a goods yard.
The railway closed south from St Andrews [2nd] in 1965 and completely in 1969.
These locations are along the line.
This was an island platform station located below street level. In addition to the two faces of the island platform, there was a loading dock at the north end, with a short section of platform alongside the southbound line. Also known as the new station.
