Historic road vehicles to make welcome return to the railway this weekend.
On Sunday, 22nd July, from 2pm members of the ‘Gang Warily’ Historic Vehicle Run make a welcome return and put on a magnificent display of historic lorries, buses and other vehicles, some dating back to before WWll ,at the Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway at the end of their 60 mile ‘run’.
It is two years since their last visit when a total of 47 vehicles crowded into the car park at Bo’ness Station and this year the display of over 50 vehicles is hoped to be as dramatic, bringing an extra dimension to those visiting the attraction this weekend. The road-run is held annually in memory of the late Peter Drummond, a well respected member of the Albion Club, and managing director of Drummond Distribution, of Armadale, West Lothian, who died in January 2009.
“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.”
