    The National Lottery Heritage Fund have awarded the Scottish Railway Preservation Society, operators of the Bo'ness & Kinneil Railway and Museum of Scottish Railways, £741,500 towards the 'Steaming Ahead' project to construct a new steam locomotive workshop, the training of apprentices and redevelopment of the Museum entrance.

    The lottery fund's grant brings total grant funding for this project to just under £1,030,000, although with an estimated total project cost in excess of £1,600,000, donations of any size will be welcomed!. Perhaps the most important project we have ever undertaken at Bo'ness to secure a sustainable operational future for our collection.

    This splendidly restored G&SWR 6 wheel passenger brake, built in 1901, saw the light of day for the first time in good few years yesterday. Caught as it was being transferred to its new home in the Museum. GSWR122.jpg
