The Wemyss Private Railway was built to convey coal and minerals and was almost entirely within the estate of the Wemyss family. Until 1926 a passenger service was provided for their miners too.

The signalling here would appear to have been installed by the North British Railway as the box and signals were to their design.

After 1947, the network was operated jointly with the National Coal Board but it remained independent through to closure in around 1970.
