Attraction Information

On the Bo'ness and Kinneil Railway experience what it was like in the olden days on a scenic five-mile return train trip to Manuel where you can get off and stretch your legs at the new platform. There's an On Train Buffet where you can buy old fashioned sweeties and other treats and lots of new sights, sounds and smells to discover throughout your visit!
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, a great way to stretch their little legs and keep kids from getting bored. Why not bring a frisbee?!

Follow the new Visitor Trail to the Museum of Scottish Railways, Scotland's largest railway museum, and see more of what happens around the site. Take a fantastic journey into the past and explore three large buildings filled with locomotives, carriages, wagons and other railway artefacts.
Also, there are downloadable itinerary ideas on their website and also a Top 10 Things to do list to give you plenty of ideas on how to make the most of your visit!

If you have kids who are fans of Thomas the Tank Engine, come and ride along with Thomas and some of his friends! Meet Sir Topham Hatt and have some fun with Sodor's Station Sweepers, Rusty & Dusty! You can also take part in some colouring or drawing in the Imagination Station, have fun with face painting and watch balloon modelling! Join in the fun with a reenactment with Thomas, perhaps helping to fill him with water. Ride inside Daisy the DMU, and in Henrietta who is pulled along by Toby. Refreshments will be available throughout the day.
