Station


Name and dates

Largo (1857-1965)

Opened on the East of Fife Railway.


Description

This was a two platform station immediately east of the Largo Viaduct. The main station building was on the westbound platform. A goods line ran round the north of the eastbound line and there was a goods yard to the north served from the east.

The westbound platform was an addition, as was the loop alongside it. The eastbound platform and building, of a plain style typical of the original line, were the originals. The later building was North British Railway style.

The station closed to passengers in 1965 and line closed in 1966.

The site has been cleared and is now a park called Station Park.

Local

Nearby in Largo (actually Lower Largo) is a statue to Robinson Crusoe. Alexander Kirk, on whom Daniel Defoe based Crusoe, was born in Lower Largo.
