Kinneil railway station

Kinneil railway station, also known as Kinneil Halt, is a railway station in Bo'ness, Scotland. The station is a request stop to start the tour of the Kinneil nature reserve.[1] It is located in the area previously occupied by Kinneil Colliery and as a result, the railway in the vicinity is very tightly curved and has a speed limit of just 10 mph due to possible subsidence. Between 1985 and 1989 it was the line's terminus and included a loop which has now been partially removed.
