Roy Bridge railway station is a railway station serving the village of Roybridge in the Highland region of Scotland. This station is on the West Highland Line.

The station was originally a two platform station, the up loop being removed in 1966. The main station buildings and signal box were both located on the up side and were demolished after closure and de-manning.

Services[edit]

Mondays to Saturdays, the station is served by three Scotrail trains per day in each direction, northbound to Mallaig and southbound to Glasgow Queen Street, along with the Highland Caledonian Sleeper between London Euston and Fort William via Edinburgh Waverley (the latter doesn't run southbound on Saturdays or northbound on Sundays). Sundays see just one train per day call each all year round, with a second in the summer months only (May - October) and the southbound sleeper.[2]

The sleeper also carries seated coaches and can thus be used by regular passengers from/to Glasgow (Queen St Low Level) and Edinburgh. The sleeper calls at Roy Bridge by request only.
