Name and dates

Kirkland Yard

Opened on the Kirkland Yard (North British Railway).


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

The yard was reduced to a single line when the Kingdom of Fife Railway Preservation Society choose the site as their base. Their hertiage centre is the Fife Heritage Railway.
