Steaming Ahead : New Engineering Facility Takes Shape
Our National Lottery Heritage Funded Steaming Ahead project has been unfolding right before our eyes over the last few months with the building of the new engineering facility on our site.
The engineering facility, when complete will be used to care for the steam locomotive collection and other rolling stock, using the space to train volunteers and apprentices from the local area. There will also be a viewing gallery for visitors with interpretative material so they can see restoration of our historic collection in progress.
Photos below show the progress of the building works so far……..

“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.”
