The Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway and Museum of Scottish Railways are operated by volunteers of the Scottish Railway Preservation Society (SRPS).

The Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway has been developed since 1979 on a reclaimed site on the south shore of the Firth of Forth and now welcomes over 60,000 visitors aboard nostalgic steam and heritage diesel trains and through the doors of Scotland’s largest railway museum every year.

Several historic buildings have been obtained and re-erected to provide a traditional railway setting.  Bo’ness station opened in 1981. The line was extended to Kinneil in 1984 and to Birkhill in 1989, where the Fireclay Mine was open to the public (closed permanently in 2013). From 2010 the passenger service operates over the extension to Manuel where a new platform was opened in mid 2013. Source – Bo’ness and Kinneil Railway website.
