British Aluminium factory and freight train
Notes by Keddie Law
Burntislandís British Aluminium (later Alcan) plant around the 1960s. Alumina, converted from imported bauxite, was taken to the British Aluminium Company smelters at Fort William and Kinlochleven, where it was made into aluminium ingots, then sent to the rolling mills in Falkirk. The Burntisland plant closed in 2002, and was demolished shortly afterwards.
