Kilwinning East Junction

You would be hard pressed to find any remains of the L&A branch from Kilwinning East to Irvine Bank Street apart from the building on Irvine's Bank Street which has survived and I believe may even have pre-dated the railway. All else has been wiped away completely, the last piece of embankment behind Eglinton Ironworks Institute and a bridge abutment over the Doura branch having disappeared in the early 1980s. However, surprisingly, this filled in overbridge, with severely rusted parapets, sits in the middle of Ravenspark Golf Course just north of the site of Bogside Moor station.
