Passenger trains returned to Levenmouth for the first time in 55 years on Sunday 2 June with the reopening of the branch line in Fife. Scotland’s First Minister John Swinney officiated at opening ceremonies at Cameron Bridge and Leven stations on 29 May, kicking off several days of celebrations in the local community, including a garden party organised by Fife Council and a community day.

The reopening represents a £116 million investment from the Scottish Government and has delivered 19 single track kilometres of railway, as well as two fully accessible stations. The programme has a strong multimodal focus, with investment to improve local bus services and more than 1km of active travel bridges and routes linking to the new station also forming part of the scheme.
