Glenrothes with Thornton (1992-)

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

Open on the Fife Circle.


This is a two platform station.

Despite appearances, this is not a conventional two platform station and the two platforms are on separate lines. The north platform is on the curve from Thornton West Junction to Thornton North Junction and the south platform is on the Thornton West Junction to Thornton South Junction curve. Thornton West Junction is to the immediate west of the station.

Thornton Shed [2nd] was to the west of the station, the original Thornton West Junction [1st] was to the east of the station.
