My dad being a train enthusiast it’s no surprise that on our recent trip to Edinburgh we visited nearby Bo’ness and Kinneil Railway, a heritage railway that operates over 5 miles of Scottish countryside.
I’m not all that enthusiastic about looking at trains but I do like travelling in them and we booked ourselves on to the first journey of the day which took us from Bo’ness to Manuel Junction and then back again.
The train was very comfortable and not very busy so we had a coach to ourselves – it got busier later in the day.
It was also a good opportunity to see some countryside and we even spotted some wild deer running alongside the train, but too fast for me to get a decent photo.
At Bo’ness Station there is also a very well made “O” Gauge Model Railway housed in two old Norwegian carriages (below) and it is also home to the Museum of Scottish Railways (to feature in a future post).
You can find more photos of the railway here.
