Townhill Yard

Wide view north east over the remains of Townhill Yard, in the summer of 2006. A DMU heading for Cowdenbeath, is about to pass a coal train in the sidings. The latter arrived earlier from Hunterston via the Forth Bridge behind an EWS class 66, which has since run round. The coal will shortly head back the way it came as far as Charlestown Jct, thence via the north shore of the Forth to reach Longannet power station. Halbeath level crossing can just be made out in the background, with the M90 motorway bridge beyond
