Three large buildings full of railway locomotives, carriages and wagons. There is plenty to keep everyone entertained, visitors can operate a railway signal and points, climb aboard heritage locomotives and learn about the making, operating and using of Scottish Railways through the ages. A family favourite is to sort some letters in the Travelling Post Office and view the classic video “Night Mail”.
Take our new Visitor Trail to the Display Shed which houses the last remaining “Glasgow Blue Train”, a recently restored Class 126 Diesel Multiple Unit and several other heritage items of rolling stock.

About the Collection
The collection is based in the Museum of Scottish Railways at Bo’ness and we also have a significant object and archive collection, illustrating the history of railways in Scotland, a history which of course is still being written.
Most of the railway heritage items not currently operating are displayed in the Museum of Scottish Railways, or in our new vehicle display area, beside Bo’ness Station. Some items are kept in buildings which do not have public access, but there are occasional guided tours to these – see More to Enjoy at the Museum above. For access to collections not on display please contact email@example.com.
We were awarded full Accreditation status, as the Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway, on 30th April 2009. The award demonstrates that we have achieved defined national standards relating to governance, visitor services and collection management. Our collection has also been recognised through the Scottish Government Recognition Scheme as being of national significance.
Further details of the exhibits can be found on the Scottish Railway Preservation Society Collections Website.
“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.”
