Longniddry Railway Station


(Nuadh-Treabh Fada )

A railway station in East Lothian, Longniddry (referred to as Nuadh-Treabh Fada in Gaelic) lies on the eastern edge of the village, a quarter-mile (0.5 km) east of the centre, on the opposite side of the A198 road. Opened in 1846 by the North British Railway, this was once an important junction with branch lines diverging here for Gullane and Haddington. Both of these closed in the 1960s and, although Longniddry is now located on the East Coast Main Line, it is only services to and from North Berwick which stop here. The original station buildings were demolished in the 1980s and replaced with utilitarian passenger shelters. The station is now operated by ScotRail. It is unstaffed and is used by around 194,000 passengers per annum (2016). Longniddry is preceded by Drem Railway Station, 4½ miles (7 km) to the east northeast, and followed by Prestonpans, 3¾ miles (6 km) to the west southwest.
