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.
