LMRC - LevenMouth Rail Campaign

Lobbying for reconnecting Leven with the east coast mainline.

LMRC - the challenge

Levenmouth is the largest urban area (pop 37,600) in Scotland NOT directly served by rail, despite the presence of a high standard mothballed line between Thornton (on the main east coast line) and Leven, a distance of 5 miles

The Campaign seeks to raise awareness and exert pressure from the local community for the need, logic and justice of reconnecting our neglected community to the national rail network.   We need to restore both passenger and freight services - given the poor road connections to the area, better freight links will aid motorists by shifting extra traffic off the highways

WE NEED STRONG PUBLIC SUPPORT TO MAKE THE CASE  so please sign our online petition, to be presented to the Scottish Parliament ; and get your friends and family to do likewise

Reinstate the Thornton Leven Rail Link at the following sites

Get involved

Local resident or living farther afield?.  If you agree with our aims - to press for the reinstatement of the rail link, then contact us or come and get involved (see meetings, facebook page etc).  LMRC is open to all. Optional membership helps build the case.

Many other smaller communities in Scotland which have a much weaker case have already organised - it's time Levenmouth stopped being less than the sum of its individual parts.  Let's get busy to get this line reconnected
