Newtongrange railway station is part of the Borders Railway, the reopened section of the Waverley Route between Edinburgh Waverley and Tweedbank, just beyond Galashiels. The new station is on a site south of the original station. There are half-hourly services from this stop to Tweedbank and Edinburgh. This station serves the town of Newtongrange, Midlothian, Scotland.

The station was previously closed (along with the Waverley Line) in 1969. The station reopened on 6 September 2015.[1] On 9 September 2015 the Queen and Prince Philip stopped off in Newtongrange station to unveil a plaque.[2] The new construction work was undertaken by BAM Nuttall.
