Luffness Platform railway station

Luffness Platform (also known as Luffness Golf Club Halt[1]) served a golf course near Gullane in Scotland. It was served by the Aberlady, Gullane and North Berwick railway. This line diverged from the North British Railway Main Line at Aberlady Junction, east of the current Longniddry station. For the private use of members of the Luffness Golf Club, this unstaffed halt was opened in 1898 and closed in 1932. Passengers alighting had to inform the train guard at Gullane or Aberlady and passengers joining the train there had to request it to stop by hand signals.
