Cowdenbeath railway station lies just a few miles west of Kirkcaldy in the east of Scotland and serves the town of the same name and the surrounding villages. It was opened in the late-19th century along the Kinross-shire Railway line and was serviced by the Edinburgh and Northern Railway. It fell out of importance and lost many of its services after the 1963 Beeching Report and, unfortunately, none of the original station buildings still stand today. It is run and managed along with the trains that pass through by Abellio ScotRail. The station is accessed by ramps on both sides of the two platforms and facilities include a ticket office with automatic ticket vending machines, waiting rooms, a public toilet, electronic displays, and a footbridge connecting both the platforms together. Throughout peak times, there is an hourly direct service to Edinburgh Waverley taking just 44 minutes.  

There’s plenty of things to do when you step off the train at Cowdenbeath. If you’ve brought your clubs, you can spend a sunny afternoon teeing off from the Cowdenbeath Golf Course. Alternatively, take a stroll around Central Park or catch one of the local matches at the Cowdenbeath Football Club.
