Kirkcaldy in Fife, Scotland is on the Fife Circle Line and East Coast Main Line, with regular services shipping commuters to Edinburgh, 26 miles to the northeast. The station was opened in 1847, rebuilt in the 1960s and renovated in the 1980s after a fire, so the majority of the current station is a mix of these recent rebuilds. The arrival of rail had a profound impact on Kirkcaldy, prompting a revival of the port, which shipped flax, timber, coal, salt and cloth in and out of the town. As a result, Kirkcaldy became the industrial heart of Fife throughout the mid-19th century and into the early 20th. Today, Kirkcaldy remains a bustling hive of activity, with a retail-centric town centre and the annual Links Market, Europe's longest street fair, drawing an international crowd. As of 2011, the harbour is back in use following its closure in 1992, and commercial shipping is once again the thriving industry of this charming Scottish town.
