Name and dates

Cardenden

Opened on the Dunfermline Branch (Edinburgh and Northern Railway).

Open on the Fife Circle.


Description

This is a two platform station with slightly staggered platforms. A lattice footbridge survived and there are modern glazed shelters, the larger on the up (Edinburgh) bound platform.

The main station building, on the up platform, was an extraordinary mock Tudor exposed timber two floor structure with a platform canopy. This was rendered in later years, hiding the timbers.

In the 1980s the station acted as a terminus for trains from Edinburgh, before the Fife Circle route became available.
