Invertiel

Looking towards the east coast along the trackbed of the former Kirkcaldy District Railway approaching Invertiel Viaduct on 15 March with a 170 DMU crossing the Tiel Burn. A junction once existed near this point with a spur climbing up to the right to join the main line and the route straight ahead dropping below it to reach the planned terminus at Seafield Harbour. The harbour had originally been intended as an export dock to handle coal from the various pits in the Cowdenbeath area. Unfortunately, as a result of severe damage to the works following a sustained period of bad weather, the project eventually failed.
