Winter Diesel Gala 2017
Winter Diesel Gala – 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 Friday 29 December from 09.30 to 17.00. Please click here for up to date information, including timetables, (when available) about this event which is organised and run by the SRPS Diesel Group.
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.
This event will feature locos from our home fleet (27001, 37703 and 47643) and we hope to be able to offer guest locomotives from other operators which are to be confirmed. Our Station Buffet at Bo’ness will be open for food and hot and cold drinks. There will also be an on train buffet serving snacks and real ale.
Subject to weather conditions, our Museum of Scottish Railways will be open 11am until 3pm (last admission 2.30pm). Amongst the three large buildings of locomotives, carriages, wagons and other artefacts, you can see National Railway Museum‘s iconic electric loco class 84 001 which is on loan to us.

“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.”
