The Aberlady, Gullane and North Berwick Railway was incorporated on 24 August 1893 as a route to promote North Berwick as a resort.[1] It was connected to the Main Line at Longniddry.

The line opened to Gullane on 1 April 1898 with the North British Railway taking over the line on 6 August 1900.[1] The remaining section of the line to North Berwick was never constructed.

Current operations[edit]

The line was closed to passengers on 12 September 1932,[1] and totally on 15 June 1964.[2]
