Earlseat Loading Pad (2012-)

Opened on the Leven Railway.


Description

This loading pad opened in 2012 for loading of opencast coal which was extracted, by opencast, at the site of the former Earlseat Colliery, to the south. A loop was laid on the south side of the former Leven Railway railway 2/3 of a mile north east of Thornton North Junction. The site was just south of the former Balgonie Colliery Julian Pit bing.

The siding was only used briefly and has been taken out. The opencast closed.
