Campaigning for a More Prosperous Levenmouth

Levenmouth Rail Campaign

Success at last! Trains by March 2024

We strive to regenerate our hard pressed local community to make it - after decades of decline - 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.

Here’s our latest video:

Levenmouth Rail: The Past, Present and Future

The Scottish Government  announced in August 2019 that detailed work would go ahead in preparation for the opening of the Levenmouth line together with improved bus, walking and cycling links for the area. There will be stations at Leven and Cameron Bridge. This is the culmination of our and many other people’s hard work over years to persuade the government of the need to reopen the line. It is expected that when it opens in early 2024 trains to Edinburgh will take 70-75 minutes. See the press release at

The final report on bus and rail alternatives is at

Things are now happening on the ground with old tracks being removed and reused or recycled. New infrastructure should start appearing early in 2022. Network Rail’s media release including a video is here.

Network Rail’s consultation site is now live at You can see details of the line, station locations, FAQs and contact details to ask questions and give your views. Network Rail will continue to update via their website and on social media – @NetworkRailScot – as work towards getting #LevenmouthReconnected.

As work has now started on the line it is dangerous to trespass on it as there may be machinery and vehicles working there and there are holes in the ground.

The Scottish Greens have published an interesting Rail for All programme which suggests a Forth tunnel from Kirkcaldy to Leith at a cost of £5bn by the 2030s. This could reduce the time from Levenmouth to Edinburgh to around 40 minutes and have vast economic results for East and Central Fife as well as providing much faster services from the capital to Dundee, Aberdeen, Perth and Inverness.

The meeting on Tuesday 30 August 2022 at 18:30 will be in person at Fife Renewables Innovation Centre, Ajax Way, Methil and also on Zoom. Meetings generally are on the final Tuesday of each month (normally except July and December).  Anyone interested is welcome to participate – just send your email address to
