Almond Valley Light Railway

< >

The Almond Valley Railway is a recent 2' 6" gauge railway which has been developed at the Almond Valley Heritage Centre at Livingston, near Edinburgh. The Scottish new town was built in the area once famous for its oil industry - oil shale was mined and processed in the area until the 1960s. Under development on the site is a museum based on the industry; one of the exhibits will be a 2'6" gauge overhead electric locomotive built in 1902 Baldwin, which worked locally. An extension of the current 500m line is planned, and a number of ex-industrial diesel locomotives are used for passenger-hauling duties.
