The East Fife Central Railway was a mineral railway line in Fife, Scotland, that ran from near Leven to . It was intended to develop extensive coal measures in the area, but in fact they proved to be uneconomic. The line was completed by the North British Railway and it opened in 1898. It was loss-making from the outset, and only a minimal agricultural traffic and some sporadic minor coal working provided traffic for it, although there was a brief workmen's passenger service to Largoward Colliery in 1911 - 1913. The line closed in 1964. There is now no railway activity on the former route.

  • The East Fife Central Railway was a mineral railway line in Fife, Scotland, that ran from near Leven to . It was intended to develop extensive coal measures in the area, but in fact they proved to be uneconomic. The line was completed by the North British Railway and it opened in 1898. It was loss-making from the outset, and only a minimal agricultural traffic and some sporadic minor coal working provided traffic for it, although there was a brief workmen's passenger service to Largoward Colliery in 1911 - 1913. The line closed in 1964. After line closure, John Cameron purchased a main line steam engine and operated it on a short length of track at Lochty; this developed into the Lochty Private Railway and from 1967 to 1992 the short railway, and a steam museum at Lochty, operated successfully. There is now no railway activity on the former route. (en)
