Name and dates

Cameron Bridge (1854-1969)

Opened on the Leven Railway.


Description

This was an island platform station surrounded by the Cameronbridge Distillery, for which there were many sidings.

As initially built it was a single platform station with a bay at the east end. To the west was a level crossing on the Kirkcaldy to Cupar road. The distillery progressively expanded east, over the River Leven to surround the station.

The road was replaced by a bridge to the east of the station and a further line added to the north of the station when the line was doubled making the platform into an island.

The Muiredge Branch, serving several collieries and Muiredge Goods branched off from the east of the station and ran south.

After closure to passengers the sidings remained in use serving the distillery until the 1990s. Trackwork remains in place.

The location is sometimes described as Windygates, which was at a crossroads roughly a half mile to the north.
