The "red-eye" to Edinburgh Waverley leaving Dalgety Bay.
The permanent way looking a little prone to settlement here. Is it just me...or do the tracks look a bit squiggly here? Ducking under the bridge?

Many years before Dalgety Bay railway station was built the area was served by Donibristle Halt. LinkExternal link LinkExternal link. Intended primarily for the use of those employed at the nearby Royal Naval Air Station (1917-1959). Donibristle Halt was closed in 1959 along with the air base.

This part of the Scottish East Coast Mainline is no stranger to the occasional visitor from bygone eras of steam or old diesel.
