Leslie viaduct

Only a few minutes from my home and the first time using it for a blip. Extending for 4¼ miles from Markinch, the single-track Leslie Railway received royal assent in 1857 and opened for both goods and passenger traffic on Friday 1st February 1861. Its main source of income came from several local paper mills. It closed down as a train route in 1967 and is now part of the boblingon way path that runs to markinch.

Engineered by the prolific and ill-fated Thomas Bouch.The viaduct, with 14 spans, is 214 yards
