The Bo'ness & Kinneill Railway Members Special Day Saturday 7th March 2009

A members special was scheduled for the above Saturday as, I believe, the boiler ticket for 55189 was about to expire.  Departure time from Bo'ness was 12.30 and there was an eager crowd of photographers waiting to record the event for prosperity!  The above video was taken from the foreshore on the trains return trip from Birkhill to Bo'ness. The Bo'ness and Kinneill Railway's Caledonian Railways 0-4-4 Tank Engine No 55189 has an excellent website on the above link.  Ten days after the Bo'ness event I was at the Perth Camcorder Club meeting where a selection of film from the Scottish Screen Archive were being shown.  Including one that depicted an engine the same as 55189 arriving at Aberfeldy in the war years.  An excellent pictorial illustration of the class use on branch passenger duties.

 While 55189 is the focus of attention work goes continues on 'Morayshire's' tender After 55189's return to Bo'ness, the BR Standard Class 2-6-4 Tank engine 80105 is shunted out from the back of the yard by 55189 to pose for a photo-shoot.
