North Queensferry railway station is a railway station in the village of North Queensferry, Fife, Scotland. The station is managed by First ScotRail and is on the Fife Circle Line, 11¼ miles (18 km) north east of Edinburgh Waverley.
Although the station was not in service by the time of the opening of the Forth Bridge in March 1890, it was in use soon after. The station replaced the station at North Queensferry Pier, which had been opened in 1874 to take passengers to and from the ferry across the Forth.
The station has been unstaffed since 1990, following the closure of its ticket office. The original wooden Victorian station building is still standing and its design is unique to the area.
To celebrate the Forth Bridge Centenary in 1990, a large mosaic depicting the bridge and the local area, created entirely by local residents, was unveiled at the station on Platform 2. The mosaic is now a well known landmark on the Fife Circle line.
Monday to Saturday daytimes four trains per hour go to Haymarket and onwards to Edinburgh Waverley southbound. Four trains per hour head towards northbound Inverkeithing and the Fife Circle. Of these, two run the full length of the circular route to Glenrothes with Thornton (one "clockwise" via Dunfermline, the other "anti-clockwise" via Kirkcaldy), one runs to Glenrothes via the coast and then terminates there and the other runs via Dunfermline to terminate at Cowdenbeath.
