Aberdour railway station in Fife has been named the best small station in Britain at the National Rail Awards.

Judges looked at criteria including safety, infrastructure and customer-friendly presentation.

A new community heritage centre opened at the station and the signal box, located on the platform, was restored and converted into a studio for local artist Lynette Gray in 2017.

ScotRail said the station had been given a "new lease of life".

The award was announced at a ceremony in London on Thursday.

James Ledgerwood, ScotRail's head of economic and community development, said: "We're delighted that Aberdour has won this accolade.

"It's fantastic to see the hard work of the volunteers, and the local community, get the recognition it deserves.

"Making our stations a more pleasant and relaxing place to catch a train is a key part of our plan to build the best railway Scotland has ever had."
