Newcraighall railway station is a railway station serving the Newcraighall area of Edinburgh in Scotland. It is the current terminus of the Edinburgh Crossrail line. The station is also popular as a Park & Ride or Parkway Station for the Scottish Borders and Midlothian. The route is due to be extended beyond Newcraighall towards Galashiels, as part of the revival of the Waverley Line.

Service[edit]

Monday to Saturday daytimes there is a half-hourly service to Edinburgh and an hourly evening service. Trains normally continue onwards via Inverkeithing and Kirkcaldy to Glenrothes with Thornton, though some peak hour services run to Dunblane instead.

There is no Sunday service.
