Name and dates

Wellesley Colliery Duncan Pit

Served by the Wemyss and Buckhaven Railway.

Served by the Wemyss Private Railway.


Description

This pit was served by a sidings from the Wemyss and Buckhaven Railway just east of West Wemyss station. The sidings were on the south side of the line and the pit was reached by a reversal in the sidings. The pit was closed by 1893.

The pit sidings remained and when the Wemyss Private Railway was extended west to meet the sidings this became an exchange point between the two railways. The connection between the lines was later taken out before the Second World War.
