Location type


Name and dates


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


A new terminus serving Leven, Innerleven and Methil will be built below the A955 Bawbee Bridge which crosses over the River Leven and the former freight only line to Methil Power Station and the docks. This new site for the terminus is required as the sites of Leven [1st] and Leven [2nd] stations are not available.

The railway will be double track and electrified. There will be a car park (directly by the former Leven Dock) and connecting bus services.

This was not formerly the site of a station. The site was originally served by the single track Leven Dock Railway which ran from near Leven [1st] station to the long lost Leven Dock. The railway was later replaced and greatly expanded by the construction of the line from East Fife Central Junction through Kirkland Yard becoming a quadruple track railway to the Methil Docks and on to form a loop with a connection at Methil. The station will be built on this former quadruple track section just west of the former Methil East Junction and disused multi-track plate girder bridge over the Leven.

The line has been disused for many years, particularly following the closure and demolition of the power station.
