In 1857 the East of Fife Railway saw the existing line (which had ended at Leven) extended through Lundin Links and Largo to Kilconquhar. The most difficult and costly element of this extension was the construction of the 4 arch viaduct over the Keil Burn. The day of the running of the first passenger train over the line was an occasion of "high spirits" and "general rejoicing" according to newspaper reports. The engine and coaches had been decorated with evergreens and banners were displayed at the stations - one of which read "Wha wad hae thocht it?". Perhaps for some folk the first ever time they had seen a locomotive.
