This was one of the lines serving the Nobel Explosives site at Ardeer. It was concreted over to provide road (and retain rail) access to the site from the north east, thus preserving the line.
The branch originally served Misk Colliery No1, Bogend Pit and a chlorine works.
The branch closed when severed by the A78 dual carriageway. Track on this section was, not surprisingly, left in place. This is the view west towards the works, with the A78 on the right.
