It's been decades since Cumnock and Mauchline had Railway Stations as they were closed in the Beeching Cuts in 1965. Cllr Neill Watts has teamed up with Cllr. Alyson Simmons in Ballochmyle Ward and Sharon Dowey MSP to get the campaign for these new stations back on track...


Cllr.Neill Watts said: "I’ve experienced the frustration of travelling further afield to use the rail services first-hand and, after speaking with local residents, I’ve seen a growing demand to re-open Cumnock’s train station. 

The rail service has the potential to improve road safety and improve our environment, but by forcing residents to drive further afield to use the service we aren’t seeing these benefits." 

"By re-opening these stations, the area would have much stronger public transport links with the rest of Scotland. This would make it much easier for people to visit the towns, boosting tourism and our local economy."
