Hello Everyone

It is with some sadness I am announcing my resignation as Chair of the Levenmouth Rail Campaign. It will take effect from our AGM at the end of this month.

As you know we have always maintained party political neutrality. I have, however, just been selected as a candidate for the 2022 Fife Council elections for Ward 21, Leven Largo and Kennoway and so it would be wrong for me to continue in an official role. I will not mention the party as it would be inappropriate on this page.

I would like to thank everyone whose support has led to the campaign's success, whether by attending our meetings, signing our petition, distributing our leaflets etc.

There were times when I came very close to packing it in as we seemed to encounter more and more obstacles and it was the support of our community that kept me going. It was the wee things like someone joking about the line at the Bayview pie stall or folk stopping by our stall in the High Street to tell stories about their grandparent's involvement as a passenger or rail worker when the original line was running - these were the things that kept me going.
So thanks everyone, including the politicians from all parties that helped.

I will still be a supporter of LMRC and will attend our meetings etc and I look forward to being on one of the first the Leven Edinburgh trains when they start in early 2024. Toot Toot!

The freight component of the new Levenmouth line remains somewhat uncertain. There is commitment by Transport Scotland/Network Rail to run freight on the line but this also needs potential private users to step up and show willing. In earlier years, freight services to the very busy Methil Docks were crucial ... See MoreSee Less
