Old Photograph Steam Train Dunfermline Fife Scotland

Old photograph of a steam train in the railway station in Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland. The station was opened by the Dunfermline and Queensferry Railway on 1 November 1877, named Dunfermline, Comely Park. It was rebuilt in 1889, the Down, north bound, platform being extended eastwards with a new booking office building and a new Up, south bound platform, being provided; the extended facilities were brought into use on 5 March 1890, from which date the station was known as Dunfermline Lower in contradistinction to Dunfermline Upper on the line to Stirling. After the latter station was closed in 1968, the suffix was dropped and it became known as plain Dunfermline. To prevent confusion following the opening of the nearby Dunfermline Queen Margaret in 2000, the station was again renamed to Dunfermline Town.
