Announcement: 28/09/20

After a lengthy period of consideration, we have concluded that we will not be able to operate our popular Santa Steam Trains in 2020.

Our Santa Steam Trains are built on an atmosphere which rotates around singing, dancing and lots of interaction with Santa himself. We do not believe it is possible to deliver the best visitor experience within the current Coronavirus guidelines issued by the Scottish Government. We are very aware that this will be upsetting news for many of our passengers, however, the safety and satisfaction of our visitors, staff and volunteers is paramount.

The Scottish Railway Preservation Society, operators of the Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway, is a registered charity that receives no public funding. If you would like to support us through the autumn and winter, you can make a donation online here.

We hope to be able to welcome you aboard our Santa Steam Trains in 2021.
