Burntisland Railway Station
Burntisland Railway Station
The railway came to Burntisland in 1847. From then until the opening of the Forth Bridge in 1890, Burntisland was a terminus of national significance. In that period, the Burntisland/Granton ferry was the principal means of crossing the Forth estuary. Passengers transferred from the train to the ferry, and back to the train at the other side. This picture shows the facade of the original 1847 station, access to the 1890 station is through the door on the left. The newer station is behind and to the left of this building.
