Sanquhar railway station is a railway station in the village of Sanquhar, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland. The station is managed by Abellio ScotRail and is on the Glasgow South Western Line. The old station buildings are in use as a holiday home. The station was re-opened together with Gretna Green, Auchinleck, New Cumnock, Kilmaurs and Dunlop. Kirkconnel remained open but has also seen significant investment in its infrastructure.
There is a two-hourly service in each direction (with one or two extras), southbound to Dumfries and Carlisle and northbound to Kilmarnock and Glasgow. There are also three trains each weekday to Newcastle.
The Sunday service is limited, with just two trains each way currently calling.
