Success at last! Trains by 2024?

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.

The Scottish government has announced that detailed work will 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 a few years trains to Edinburgh will take 70-75 minutes. See the press release at https://www.transport.gov.scot/news/levenmouth-on-track-for-rail-investment/

My Gaga used to spend his holidays in Leven - from Springburn in Glasgow his Mum and Dad would send a pony & trap with their belongings a week ahead (!) & the family would catch a train all the way to Leven to stay in a house at the front for the holidays. Quite amazing & so proud our train will soon return. X

When I lived in Glasgow my friends would tell me they were going to leven for their holidays and no wonder what a beautiful place I live in now xxx even tho I still belong to Glasgow I've got the best of both worlds a station in leven would be the icing on the cake xxx

Wow. This is so amazing.

Interesting to know which way they were travelling, were passengers going back home after a holiday in Fife or vice versa, where did East Fife residents go on holiday to?

Guessing that would be “the fair fortnight “ or was it fare. Can’t remember.

This is amazing!! Margaret Taylor Phil Taylor💗❤️👌
