The pic of methil power station is just about where East Fife Fc play now.

Also the power station is slowly being demolished.

Great set of pics as well DD.

Is that the original Alloa station in the photos?

I believe it is. A bit better than the single platform with bus shelter rubbish
that's there (or rather further east) these days....

Some good photographs of the original station on Railbrit - looks to have been fairly sizeable. Like you say, certainly more impressive than the present one.

i take it that's 'fife energy park' or whatever they've called it now - well known as RGC, later kvaerner, in the days when they built big bastart things to sit in the north sea!



cameron bridge? (along with the one o' somebody keeking in the driver's cab)

Indeed,on both counts.

cheers doogdoog

cameron bridge always seems a bit weird to me, as in the size of it. i know there is/was a lot of freight into/out of the distillery, but the station with all its platforms is unusual on the whole east of fife line. apart from the double track section to leven, everything it was connected to  was single line, with passing loops (passenger i'm talking about here)

i wouldn't have thought windygates was such a big interchange point, unless there was a lot of pass. traffic for the distillery, mail, parcels etc.

an oakwood press book for the leven & east of fife is seemingly in the pipeline - if it's anything like the st.andrews/anstruther/wemyss volumes, it should be well worth reading. this end of the line doesn't seem to get much coverage
