Proposed Railway Lines

Aberdeen Airport

Borders Railway extensions

Buchan

Edinburgh Suburban lines

The primary target is conversion of the Edinburgh South Suburban line so that it can accommodate a regular passenger service. The main issue is capacity either side of Edinburgh Waverley, particlarly the western throat. One of the options put forward is to utilise tram trains. Abbeyhill is located east of Edinburgh Waverley on a now closed loop line.

Blackford Hill

Portobello

Glasgow Airport Rail Link (GARL)

It was originally proposed that connecting Glasgow Airport to the railway network would be achieved by created a new spur from the railway network near Paisley and a railway station at the airport. Rising costs ruled out this proposal and other options have been proposed including a Tram-Train. This option was ruled out by a report that stated that the capacity consumed by the airport services would not outweigh the impact on existing services on the rail network. The expected solution will be a new transit system that will connect Paisley Gilmour Street railway station and Glasgow Airport. It is hoped that the new transit system will expand into a network.

Glasgow Crossrail

Leven

Longannet

Perth-Tayside

Peterhead/Ellon

Scottish High Speed

  1. Just a brief clarification on the Proposed Railway Stations in Scotland – the Levenmouth line if opened would include stations at Leven, and at Cameron Bridge. Levenmouth is the name of the wider conurbation

  2. I would like to suggest the railway line Hamilton-Kilmarnock. Connecting through Strathaven-Darvel-Newmilns-Galston-Kilmarnock.

    The line was opened in 1905 and the companies ran trains along this commute once every 6 months. It was closed in 1939 as it was not successful.

    I believe a regular service connecting the Irvine Valley would not only be beneficial for local commuters but would also open up new opportunities for these deprived towns.

  3. Proposed? What’s to think about. Half these places have lines and commuter trains running regular through them. Reinstate the platforms and car parks and stop the trains.
