A study which will look into delivering a west Fife rail link has been hailed as a 'big step' toward passenger services linking Dunfermline and Glasgow. Fife Council has commissioned consultation firm Capita to undertake what has been described as a strategic transport pre-appraisal on the rail line and other transport options following the closure of Longannet Power Station in March 2016.

Despite appearances, this Hunterston-Longannet coal train is not halted on Alloa viaduct while the driver sneaks a bacon butty at the “Farm Snack Bar”. The railway “passing trade” ended with the closure of Longannet power station in March 2016, six months after this photo was taken. At the time of writing, the drive in snack bar (highly recommended) was still going strong.
