CR419 and Caledonian Railway coaches at Kinneil alt

CR419, one of many major restoration projects

The collection of locomotives, wagons, coaches and other railway artefacts at Bo’ness is recognised through the Scottish Government Recognition Scheme as being of national significance.

Whilst proceeds from our steam railway and museum at Bo’ness and our scenic railtours help with the daily operating costs, these cannot meet the additional costs of various projects which are one-off but are vital to the railway such as installing a platform at Manuel, locomotive overhauls, major maintenance of historic carriages and other substantial projects.
