Something for Sunday programme has successful first year
Afternoon Tea on a steam train is only one part of the new Something for Sunday programme being run by the Central Scotland visitor attraction which welcomes over 65,000 visitors a year aboard its nostalgic trains and through the doors of Scotland’s largest railway museum. A selection of tours & encounters which run alongside the standard timetable is available most Sundays. Ranging from Signal Box Tours to visits to the Modern Motive Power Department where visitors will enjoy a look at how a heritage diesel locomotive is restored.
The Scottish Railway Preservation Society, who operate the Museum and railway, were recently awarded the Heritage Railway Association’s Peter Manisty Award for Excellence which has previously been given to the reconstructed St Pancras Station and the newly constructed main line steam locomotive ‘Tornado’ so they have much to show to visitors.
Business Development Director Amanda Kilburn writes “We are delighted to be able to offer this programme of special tours and encounters. We recognise that today’s visitors are looking for extra value in their days out and believe that this programme will offer just that. For more information and booking details, please see here.”
“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.”
