Easter Egg Specials 2019 – News
Full steam ahead for great family fun over Easter weekend
Join us for some seasonal fun on our ever popular Easter Egg special trains on Friday 19, Saturday 20, Sunday 21 April and Monday 22 April 2019. The journey from Bo’ness to Manuel takes around 70 minutes but all tickets are Day Rovers so you can hop on and hop off as many times as you like. Stay all day and explore the Museum, Model Railway and the railway site via our Visitor Trail at Bo’ness and our stations and halts along the line.
Help yourself to a FREE booklet and follow the brass rubbing trail from Bo’ness Station to the Museum and find our eight brass rubbings on the way.
Train tickets are available at our standard prices which are £10 adults, £9 concessions, £6 children, under 5s are free and a family ticket for two adults and up to three children is great value at £28. Why not add a visit to the Museum of Scottish Railways to your day out, buy it with your train ticket for only £2 per adult or concession and the museum offers free admission for children.
A steam train will leave Bo’ness at 10.45, 12.10, 14.10 and 15.35 on all days and the Museum is open 11.00-16.00 (last admission 15.30).
Easter Treats for the kids
As a special Easter treat, all children, including under 5s, travelling on the Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway will receive a complimentary tasty Easter treat. In keeping with the nostalgic theme of our heritage railway, children should wear their Easter bonnet to be in with a chance of winning a prize, judging takes place on the train.
There’s also an Easter Egg Hunt in the Museum as well as lots of hands on fun interactive displays.
Refreshments and Gift Shop
You are welcome to bring your picnic and enjoy it at our picnic areas at Bo’ness outside the Model Railway carriages, or take it on the train with you and break your journey at Kinneil Halt or Birkhill.

“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.”
