Download your Diesel Gala Timetable here for information on locomotives train times & prices.
Primarily aimed at diesel enthusiasts, but interesting to anyone who wants to re-live the sounds and smells of these great diesel engines of the Swinging Sixties which took us to work and for a day out at the seaside right up to the 1980s. This weekend will feature locos from our home fleet together with guest locomotives including West Coast Railway Company 47270, Colas 66 and hauling trains in Scotland for the first time in 20 years, 26038. There will also be an on train buffet serving snacks and real ale provided by Bo’ness’ newest pub and restaurant, The Corbie Inn. Our Station Buffet will be open from 9am on both days for breakfast (served until 11.30am) hot and cold drinks, snacks, full meals and ice cream.
New for 2012 is a diesel hauled Beerex trains which will be double headed by 26038 & 26024 on the evening of Friday 27 July with tickets for only £10 available on the evening. Beerex departs Bo’ness hourly from 1700 to 2100, Friday only.

“This hidden gem is only 40 minutes drive from Glasgow and Edinburgh. The staff are really friendly and looked after us as we boarded a beautiful steam train, we saw heritage diesels too. The sights, smells and sounds really took us back in time. After a browse around the excellent Museum of Scottish Railways and a bite to eat in the Station Buffet we all agreed we would recommend it to everyone and we would definitely be back.”
