The Stirling and Dunfermline Railway was a railway in Clackmannanshire and Fife, Scotland connecting the stations in Stirling and Dunfermline. It had a branch line from Alloa to Tillicoultry.


Contents

Opening

It was opened progressively between 1850 and 1853 by the North British Railway.

Closure

Passenger services were withdrawn in the late 1960s with freight services continuing until the 1970s although the line to the west of Alloa remained in situ.

Re-opening

Under Scottish Executive funding and to relieve congestion on the Forth Railway Bridge the line between Stirling and Alloa is being reopened to passenger traffic. [1] Construction work started in 2005, with tracklaying commencing at the end of September 2006. It is projected that the line will reopen to passenger traffic in the Summer 2007. This is happening under the Stirling-Alloa-Kincardine rail link.
