BO'NESS RAILWAY STATION - SCOTLAND

The second day of our tour we stopped in Bo'ness  to ride on this old steam train through the very green landscape. Unfortunately the day was a little grey but even so our eyes hurt with all this green and afterwards somebody baptized this journey "the green trip". Not even a white cow or some sheep interrupted the green trees and grass.



The Bo’ness and Kinneil Railway is a heritage railway in Bo'ness, near Edinburgh, Scotland. It is operated by the Scottish Railway Preservation Society, and operates a total of over 8 km (5 miles) of track (between Bo'ness and Manuel Junction, via Kinneil and Birkhill),

Besides the green landscape we expected to see something special, but after the 8 km the train stopped and made the same way back with another steam engine.




Fortunately the station was very nice and time had stood still here



I had never thought that a station could look real cute



There were pick nick tables but unfortunately it was a little too cold for that.


There also was a restaurant and a shop.



Very old luggages showed us with what people used to travel !



Unfortunately the museum was closed.






After having admired the old engines, and walked a little around we quickly returned to our warm bus, it was really cold this day in August !
