Musselburgh railway station is a railway station serving the town of Musselburgh, East Lothian near Edinburgh in Scotland. It was opened by British Rail in 1988 and is located on the East Coast Main Line, 5 1⁄4 miles (8.4 km) east of Edinburgh Waverley, and is served by the North Berwick Line. It is located near the recently built campus of the Queen Margaret University.
A station of the same name was opened by North British Railway in July 1847 and was located not on the main line but alongside the River Esk. That station serviced the Edinburgh and Dalkeith line to Fisherrow but was closed to passenger services in 1964 and goods services in 1970.
The station currently has two platforms.
- Platform 1 is used for trains heading east to North Berwick and Dunbar.
- Platform 2 is used for trains heading west to Edinburgh Waverley, Haymarket, Glasgow Central and Ayr.
Both have waiting shelters, CIS screens and customer help points. Platform 2 also has a self-service ticket machine in its shelter, to allow intending passengers to purchase prior to travel or collect pre-paid tickets (the station is otherwise unmanned). Train running information is also provided via automatic announcements and timetable posters. Step-free access is available to each platform.
Monday to Friday daytimes there is an hourly service westbound to Edinburgh (with peak-time services carrying on to Haymarket) and eastbound to North Berwick with a half-hourly service on Saturdays. On evenings and Sundays there is an hourly service in each direction. On Monday to Saturdays there is a bi-hourly and late night limited stop service that runs from Edinburgh Waverley to Dunbar that stops at Musselburgh. There is also a limited service to and from Glasgow Central and Ayr (via Carstairs) on Mondays–Saturdays.
Lothian Buses service numbers 30, N30 and 45 stop near the station.
