Please Wave Safely – Steam Trains on the Tracks from April
We love it when we see happy faces on Bo’ness Foreshore and ask that you give us a wave as we test out our trains as part of our reopening plan.
But please do so safely and Keep Off the Tracks!
We are very lucky to have such lovely scenery around our railway which can be enjoyed from a safe distance from the railway track. As we get our trains ready to welcome you aboard again following the recent announcement of the timetable for easing coronavirus restrictions issued by the Scottish Government, we need to run our trains along the track between Bo’ness and Manuel.
Keep to safe paths and use the pedestrian crossings in place along the foreshore and at Kinneil Halt to cross the railway track safely. It is not always possible to hear a train approaching you and it cannot suddenly stop or swerve to avoid you like a car can.
Please stay safe – we’re working hard to welcome you aboard again soon.
“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.”
