Balmossie railway station is a small railway station serves the suburb of Balmossie west of Monifeifth Scotland which serves the east of Broughty Ferry. The station was originally opened on 18 June 1962 as Balmossie Halt by British Rail Scottish Region and renamed as Balmossie on 16 May 1983.
British Rail operated local passenger services between Dundee and Arbroath until around 1990. Since these were discontinued, most of the intermediate stations have had only a very sparse service, provided so as to avoid the difficulty of formal closure procedures. Currently (summer 2008), First ScotRail provides Balmossie with only one train a day in each direction, Mondays to Saturdays. These offer through service to/from Edinburgh, but are not timed conveniently for passengers wishing to commute to Dundee. Consequently, patronage of the station is currently low. There is only one of these trains a day from and to Edinburgh Waverley.
