Newtongrange railway station is a station to be opened as part of the future Waverley Line, a line to be reopened between Edinburgh and Tweedbank, just beyond Galashiels. The new station is on a site south of the original station. There is a planned half-hourly service at this stop to Gorebridge. This station will serve the town of Newtongrange, Midlothian, Scotland.

The station was previously closed (along with the Waverley Line) in 1969. The station is (as of 2013) expected to reopen by 2015. The new construction work is being undertaken by BAM Nuttall on behalf of Network Rail and Transport Scotland.
