Half Term Kids Go Free at The Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway

Hundreds of children and their carers will enjoy a half term treat next week (Monday 17 to Friday 21 October) with a chance for kids to travel free on the steam train.

One child travels free with each full paying adult and standard fares are £8 for adults, £7 for concessions, £4 for children not covered by the kids go free offer and family tickets are £20. This includes a return journey on a wonderful steam train taking in the beautiful autumn colours along the Firth of Forth and enjoying the train ride through the countryside

There is no need to pre-book your tickets, just come along on the day and bring a voucher downloaded from our website www.srps.org.uk/railway. Trains will be running from Bo’ness at 10.45, 12.15 and 14.05. Just be sure to be at the station in plenty of time.

Kids go free in our Scottish Railway Exhibition, Scotland’s largest railway museum. The whole family will enjoy the locomotives to climb on, a post office carriage to sort letters in, a chance to have a go at changing the signals and colouring in at the Kids’ Station too.

Amanda Kilburn, Business Development Director at the Bo’ness and Kinneil Railway said:
“We are delighted to run trains for the half term week. We recognise that children and their carers are looking for something to do and will enjoy our all-weather attraction. To make it even better Kids Go Free with a voucher from our website. Our volunteers will ensure that everyone has a wonderful time and is looked after.”

The society was formed in 1961 but it was not until 1979 that the Bo’ness and Kinneil Railway was created on the brown field site next to the disused dock. Several historic buildings, now listed grade A by Historic Scotland have been relocated from throughout Scotland to create an authentic branch line atmosphere.
Now, 30 years later, it is a major tourist attraction drawing over 70,000 visitors per annum and is run entirely by volunteers.
