Aberdour has the best small station in Britain – and that’s official.
The west Fife railway station won the Small Station of the Year award at the National Rail Awards in London on Thursday night.
Judges assessed the nominees against set criteria, including safety, infrastructure and customer-friendly presentation.
The award comes after a new community heritage centre opened at the station and the signal box on the platform was restored and converted into a studio for local artist Lynette Gray last year.
James Ledgerwood, ScotRail’s head of economic and community development, said: “We’re delighted that Aberdour has won this accolade.
“The station has been given a new lease of life recently and it’s fantastic to see the hard work of the volunteers and the local community get the recognition it deserves.
“Making our stations a more pleasant and relaxing place to catch a train is a key part of our plan to build the best railway Scotland has ever had.”
Aberdour’s award was hailed as excellent news by local SNP councillor Alice McGarry.
“This is a lovely thing to have,” she said.
“Aberdour has won gold in just about every award it’s gone in for.
“It’s a lovely place and I’m really pleased to hear it has won this.”
