Description

Tayport

In 2010 a Second World War railway wagon was discovered buried in the sand on Tentsmuir beach. It was originally used to transport ammunitions and supplies as well as for gunner practice by the air force training unit from nearby Leuchars. A target, mounted on the wagon, was powered by a small motor. It travelled along a section of railway track forming a moving target for the aircraft gunners to practise their shots
