Description:

Dunbar Station is a short walk from the High Street and is serviced by a number of companies with regular trains running to Edinburgh (20 minutes, some via Musselburgh) and southbound on the east coast mainline stopping at stations between Berwick Upon tweed and London Kings Cross and onwards as far as Plymouth.

The station is served by ScotRail, CrossCountry, London North Eastern Railway and TransPennine Express.

The station is fully staffed, with the ticket office open throughout the week (Monday - Friday 05:55 - 21:30, Saturday 06:25 - 20:40 and Sunday 11:15 - 21:30). Self-service ticket machines are also provided for use outside these times and for collecting pre-paid tickets. There are toilets, a payphone and vending machines on the concourse.

Train running information is provided by announcements, digital displays, a customer help point and timetable posters. Level access is available from the entrance and concourse to the platform. There are two platforms, the southbound platform is alongside the station building whilst the northbound platform is accessible via a footbridge with lifts.

History

Dunbar station was opened by the North British Railway in June 1846. Originally the station had two platforms and an overall roof. In the 1970s the northbound line was taken out of use and lifted in the early 1970s, whilst the platform itself and the station roof were both removed during the modernisation in 1987–88.

Until 2019 the station had a single bi-directional line with trains travelling to/from Edinburgh or London taking it in turns to stop at the station alongside the local service between Dunbar and Edinburgh. In December 2019 the second platform was reinstated and is accessed via a new footbridge .

Thanks to the Dunbar & District History Society for the use of the photograph showing the station in the 1920s.
