Aberdour named best small station in Britain

Aberdour's station has recently enjoyed 'a new lease of life'

Aberdour has been named the best small train station in Britain for safety, infrastructure and customer friendliness.

The win was announced last night at a ceremony in London, with Scotrail saying the station has been given a 'new lease of life' recently.

The award win comes after a new community heritage centre opened at the station and the signal box, located on the platform at Aberdour station, was restored and converted into a studio for local artist Lynette Gray in 2017.

James Ledgerwood, ScotRail’s Head of Economic & Community Development, said:

“We’re delighted that Aberdour has won this accolade.

"The station has been given a new lease of life recently and it’s fantastic to see the hard work of the volunteers, and the local community, get the recognition it deserves.

“Making our stations a more pleasant and relaxing place to catch a train is a key part of our plan to build the best railway Scotland has ever had.”
