Why Reinstate the Line?

We want to make our local community a more prosperous, healthier and attractive place to live and work. We believe reinstating the rail line to allow direct trains to/from Edinburgh is a vital requirement for this to happen.

None of the current Fife rail reinstatement Campaigns (Leven, St andrews, Alloa-Dunfermline) were recommended for closure in the Beeching Report. Some suggest that the building of the road bridges were somehow a factor in why these lines closed while another branchline (N Berwick - where some Edinburgh elite live) recommended for closure actually remained open.

First, I was unaware of the fact that Dr. Beeching did not include Leven in his report for closure. And yet, the railway went away. Second, just imagine if this line stayed in operation. It would be a built-in way to support tourism and trade along the line that lead to St. Andrews, not to mention the connection to Edinburgh. This is sort of cutting off a nose to spite a face. 1 small railway line was removed to save money, obviously. And the reluctance of the powers that be still refuse to act, waiting instead for endless studies is a poor representation of how the government works. Sad, indeed.
