St Andrews Rail Link Campaign

Patron - John Purvis CBE

St Andrews was connected to the rail system from 1852 until 1969, when it fell a victim to British Rail's indiscriminate cull of branch lines.

StARLink campaign was launched in 1989 with a view to reconnecting the town to the rail system in the interests of convenience for travellers, the alleviation of traffic congestion and reduction of car-generated pollution.

Since that time it has steadily built up support both in and outwith St Andrews, lobbied politicians at all levels and raised money for campaigning.

The Facebook page was launched in July 2015:
