The loco, which has just undergone a lengthy overhaul, is due to be relaunched into service at the Bo'ness steam gala, which is taking place from November 2nd - 4th November.  

As well as 419 being in service, Caledonian Railway 812 class no 828 is visiting on loan from the Strathspey Railway for the weekend and should make a fine sight as it travels along the banks of the Forth.

An interesting fact about the 812 class that I didn't know about until recently is that they were the inspiration for 'Donald' and 'Douglas', the Scottish twin locomotives from Rev W Awdry's 'Railway Series' and it's TV adaptation 'Thomas the Tank Engine'!
