Location type


Name and dates

Cameron Bridge

Opened on the Leven Railway.


This new two platform station will be located east of the original Cameron Bridge [1st] station (closed 1969) and the former junction for the Muiredge Goods branch. It will be located on the former Leven Railway which will be re-doubled and electrified.

The line has been out of use for many years, particularly since the closure and demolition of Methil Power Station and cessation of traffic to Cameronbridge Distillery.
