Newcraighall is a railway station on the Borders Railway, which runs between Edinburgh Waverley and Tweedbank. The station, situated 4 miles 54 chains (8 km) south-east of Edinburgh Waverley, serves the suburbs of Craigmillar and Newcraighall in the City of Edinburgh, Scotland. It is owned by Network Rail and managed by Abellio ScotRail.
Following the opening of the Borders Railway on 6 September 2015, the line was extended 30 miles 60 chains (49 km) south-east towards Galashiels and Tweedbank. The station now serves as a park and ride for Midlothian and the Scottish Borders.
Though the Waverley Route never had a station at this location, one did exist briefly at nearby Niddrie. It was opened in June 1843 by the Edinburgh and Dalkeith Railway, operating intermittently until the station's ultimate closure in January 1869.
