Opened: 2nd June, 1890.
Aberdour Station serves the village of Aberdour in Fife. It is situated 4¼ miles from Inverkeithing Central Junction and 2½ miles from Burntisland, and opened on 2nd June, 1890, as part of the improvements associated with the opening of the Forth Bridge. The station was the location of a camping coach.
Aberdour is presently served by two trains per hour in each direction during the day from Monday to Saturday; these stop at all stations between Edinburgh Waverley and Kirkcaldy. One train per hour continues to Markinch, while the other runs to Glenrothes with Thornton and continues around the Fife Circle to Edinburgh via Dunfermline.
The station is beautifully-tended and has won many 'Best-Kept Station' awards. The signal box, disused since 1979, remains in situ on the 'up' platform.
Ex-LNER Class A2/3 4-6-2 No. 60519 Honeyway passes through Aberdour Station with the 15.40 Aberdeen to Edinburgh Waverley train, 10th August, 1957. Honeyway was the racehorse that won the 1946 Champion Stakes. [W.A.C. Smith]( Collapse )
