It was a good day out (my cousin had a ball!) and there was plenty to see.

In the Bay Platform was No. 6 'Percy' and No. 1 'Thomas' (Coltness Iron Works No.1 'Lord Roberts'), both locos remained here for the duration of our visit.

The service was operated by Caledonian Railway 439 class No 419 and National Coal Board Fife Area no 19 (both minus their Thomas faces), which operated the hourly service up to Birkhill (where there was a bouncy castle, catering van and tent with entertainer set up) and back.

Meanwhile at Bo'ness, N.C.B. no. 6 was seen shunting a demonstration goods train up and down the run round loop. The Museum was also open as was the display shed so there was plenty to see.
