Landslip Fixed!

We received a late Christmas present at the end of 2020 when our railway line from Bo’ness to Manuel was handed back to us by our contractors following repairs to five major landslides. The damage, which occurred during severe weather conditions in August, meant that our trains were unable to run beyond Nether Kinneil and we were cut off from our terminus and connection to the mainline railway at Manuel. You can read more about this here.
We would not have been able to complete these repairs without the incredible response of our supporters who raised just under £130,000 in a matter of months. We cannot express our thanks enough to everyone who donated and sent wonderful messages of support!
We are working towards reopening the Railway and Museum of Scottish Railways – Coronavirus depending – for our 2021 season and we hope that we will be able to welcome back many of our visitors after a prolonged break in 2020!

Thanks to I Anderson for the photos of the completed work.
