Winter Diesel Gala
Winter Diesel Gala 2019 – blow away the cobwebs and enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of yesteryear!
Head to the Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway between Christmas and New Year and enjoy our one day Winter Diesel Gala on Saturday 28th December. Primarily aimed at diesel enthusiasts, but interesting to anyone who wants to re-live the sounds and smells of these great diesel engines of the Swinging Sixties which took us to work and for a day out at the seaside right up to the 1980s.
Motive power – This event will feature locos from our home fleet (27001, 37703 and 47643 and the Class 126 DMU). We hope to be able to offer guest locomotives from other operators. Bookmark this page for updates including information about guest locomotives and timetables!
While every effort is made to adhere to the published timetables, the railway reserves the right to make changes without prior notice. The railway reserves the right to cancel or suspend any train without notice. All locomotives and coaches are subject to availability.
“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.”
