Lundin Links Station Post-Closure
This poignant image of Lundin Links Station, after closure, was taken in 1968 by Mrs Helen Muir and was kindly shared by her daughter. Featuring Mrs Muir's husband, this photograph shows the disused station platform becoming overrun with weeds (echoing the photo of Largo Station post-closure in an earlier post). The last passenger train ran in September 1965. Some goods traffic ran for a while after that but even these trains had ceased by the time of this view. The rails would be gone soon after this image was captured and the station building itself was demolished in 1971. I really enjoyed seeing this photograph. It marks a period of transition for the village and I'm sure many people visited the deserted platform to reminisce before it was gone forever.

I remember playing on the platform in 1965 with the son of the stationmaster Mr Deans who tragically died one month before the station closed. The son (Michael) and his mother moved to Harcourt Road in Kirkcaldy after the station closed and I continued to see Michael until he moved to London where he sadly died in the late 1980s.
