Bo'ness & Kinneil Railway

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.

Experience the sights, sounds and smells of old fashioned train travel. The Guard clips your ticket as your journey begins then sit back and wave to the people you pass as the train travels through the Scottish countryside to Manuel via Kinneil Halt and Birkhill.
