The Bo’ness to Kinneil railway line operates a steam-train service alongside the Firth of Forth, with stations and some surrounding buildings altered to replicate period settings. Special events taking place on the line include festive celebrations at Hallowe’en, Christmas and New Year, and appearances by Thomas the Tank Engine.
Climb aboard a wonderfully restored carriage and enjoy a scenic five mile journey to Manuel, where a new platform will be built soon. Stay all day, there’s plenty to see and do. Make a stop at Kinneil Halt to explore the nature reserve and take a walk to Kinneil House, museum and estate and the remains of the Roman Antonine wall. Bring your picnic and stop off at Birkhill to enjoy the picturesque surroundings of this countryside station.
Follow our new visitor trail to the Museum of Scottish Railways, Scotland’s largest railway museum, and see more of what happens around the site.

Discover how railways transformed the lives of our ancestors. There is plenty to keep everyone entertained.
