Railways, Kilmarnock
A bridge takes the B7064 over the trackbeds of two railways. The nearer line is still open and was the Glasgow and Kilmarnock Joint Railway running to Glasgow via
Stewarton. This was operated by the Caledonian Railway The further arch crosses the now closed Glasgow, Paisley, Kilmarnock and Ayr Railway a rival line operated by the Glasgow and South Western via Dalry. The Glasgow, Paisley, Kilmarnock and Ayr Railway track is still there in places, buried under vegetation. A 1976 map shows it as intact as far as Dalry. The line is now a cycle path, National Cycle Network route 73.
