Burntisland


View over the Firth of Forth towards Edinburgh from my bedroom at 148, Kinghorn Road, Burntisland, Fife, circa 1981.


Hauled by a Brush Type 4 (TOPS Class 47), a northbound express approaches the bottom of the garden at 148, Kinghorn Road, Burntisland, shortly after my family moved there in early 1981. The fabrication shed and one of the cranes of Burntisland shipyard can be seen above the rear of the train.


A northbound Class 254 High Speed Train passes the bottom of the garden at 148, Kinghorn Road, Burntisland, shortly after my family moved there at the start of 1981.
