Rosyth Dockyard

Is this Scotland's least-used working branch? Looking west along the Rosyth Dockyard line towards the docks on 27 March 2010. In the background is the Babcock Engineering's shed see image 22278 and on the left is Rosyth Castle. It's hard to believe but until the Royal Dockyard was built round it in Edwardian times this was on a tidal island off a shore with no signs of habitation: the settlement of Rosyth simply didn't exist until built from scratch as a 'garden city'.
