Shawfair railway station is on the Borders Railway, a railway line between Edinburgh and Tweedbank, just beyond Galashiels, in Scotland. The station serves the new development of Shawfair, Midlothian, to the south-east of Edinburgh. At this point the line does not follow the old Waverley Route via Millerhill, the trackbed of which was severed by the construction of the Edinburgh City Bypass in the 1980s.

At this stop there is a half-hourly service Monday–Saturday and hourly service on Sunday to Edinburgh and Tweedbank. The construction work was undertaken by BAM Nuttall opening on 6 September 2015.[1]
