Opened by the North British Railway in 1890 (as part of the approach routes linking the Edinburgh and Northern Railway to the new Forth Rail Bridge), it became part of the London and North Eastern Railway during the Grouping of 1923. The line then passed on to the Scottish Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948. When Sectorisation was introduced by British Rail, the station was served by the ScotRail sector until the Privatisation of British Railways. The station has won numerous awards for its gardens.
The station was the location of a camping coach.
Aberdour is served by two trains per hour (weekday daytimes) which serve all stations between Edinburgh Waverley and Kirkcaldy. Both continue to Glenrothes with Thornton, where one terminates & returns to Edinburgh whilst the other continues around the Fife Circle Line returning to Edinburgh via Dunfermline. In the evening, the frequency drops to hourly, with most trains continuing to Dundee (though one runs to Perth instead). Sunday trains are also hourly, running round the Fife Circle.
