StARLink Appeal

Winston Churchill, St Andrews Railway Station, 1940If you support the re-establishment of a direct rail link to St. Andrews, now might be a good time to consider a donation to StARLink.

If the money’s collected within the next week or so, an engineering feasibility study that usually costs £20,000 can be undertaken for only £4,000 + VAT. Over half the money has already been raised in the last couple of weeks, but obviously more is needed, and timing matters. If undertaken within this timescale, the consultant can use the study as a demonstration example, which is why the much reduced price.

You can send a cheque made payable to “Starlink” – a suggested sum is £25 – to:

5 Whitehill Terrace
Largo Road
St Andrews
Fife KY16 8RN

If you’re not already a supporter, the StARLink web site provides some reasons why you might wish to be. It’s also worth looking at the site’s news archive to see the support the campaign has received over the years. One impressive example is the survey data taken last year showing that upwards of 70% of car users visiting St. Andrews would have considered coming by rail instead if it were an option.
