The Inchture Railway Bus service operated a service from its junction at Inchture Station northwards, along a one and a half mile stretch to the village of Inchture. Although operated by the Caledonian Railway, this was not a railway in the true sense, but a horse-drawn tramcar on rails. It began service in 1848 and during its peak, ran six return journeys on weekdays, before it eventually closed on 1 January 1917.  The building which used to house the tramcar still exists today in the form a of a private house, with the outlines of the former garage doors still clearly visible.
