Name and dates

Kirkland Yard

Opened on the Kirkland Yard and Leven Dock to Methil Line Widening (North British Railway).


This large yard was associated with the expansion of the docks at Methil, particularly the opening of Methil Dock No 3, and the expansion of the lines between the former Leven Railway and the Methil docks.

The yard had been reduced to a single line by the time the Kingdom of Fife Railway Preservation Society choose the site as their base, the Fife Heritage Railway Centre.
