Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway

A nice day trip through to Bo'ness today.

This was the first day of the trains running this season at Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway.

National Coal Board (NCB) locomotive No 19 had her first trip out after the winter renovations and looked great.

Fortunate to see the 'Royal Scotsman' diesel locomotive as she departed, and also diesel locomotive 20 020 stationed at the platform in Bo'ness.

Birkhill station has had a makeover and change of colour scheme to the style of the 'Caledonian Railway' and the volunteers are to be commended for their hard work.

All in all a rewarding day and nice to see some familiar faces while chatting to the volunteers.
