Diesel Gala 2019 – blow away the cobwebs and enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of yesteryear! Updated 26th December 2019
Head to the Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway between Christmas and New Year and enjoy our one day Winter Diesel Gala on Saturday 28th December. Primarily aimed at diesel enthusiasts, but interesting to anyone who wants to re-live the sounds and smells of these great diesel engines of the Swinging Sixties which took us to work and for a day out at the seaside right up to the 1980s. Trains depart Bo’ness from 09:30; the full timetable can be found here.
Motive power – This event will feature locos from our home fleet (26038, 37703 and 47643 and the Class 126 DMU). We are indebted to our Colleagues at DRS who are very kindly sending us a Class 66 to add to our roster. Please check the latest timetable here.
With ample free parking on site it is easy to get to Bo’ness Station, for those coming by public transport please note there is no service from Edinburgh to Linlithgow, so our friends at PreScoBus have kindly arranged to have a bus at Edinburgh Waverley to leave at 08.20, there will be a return service to Waverley after the last Diesel Gala train returns to Bo’ness. In between times there will be a free bus shuttle service between Bo’ness and Linlithgow throughout the day timetable here
We are offering Diesel Shed tours –please follow the access signs on the platform. Our friends in the Norwegian Coaches are operating an O Gauge DCC Sound DieselGala Day as well, so this is worth a visit!
