Name and dates

Kingsbarns (1883-1930)

Opened on the Anstruther and St Andrews Railway.


Description

This was a two platform station with a passing loop. It was some way west of Kinsbarns itself - around a mile. The main station building was on the southbound platform, the town side. Platforms were joined by a footbridge.

There was a goods yard on the east side, served from the north, connected to the north end of the northbound line.

There was a level crossing at the south end.

The station closed in 1930 and line remained open until 1965, the loop closing with the line. The northbound platform was reduced to a mound after closure to passengers.

The site is now very overgrown with trees. Platforms and loading banks remain and were still visible in the 1980s. No buildings survive. The building was similar to those at Boarhills and Stravithie.
