Scottish Railway Exhibition - The Scottish Railway Preservation Society has the largest collection of railway locomotives, carriages, wagons, equipment and artefacts outside the National Railway Museum.

The Scottish Railway Exhibition was opened in 1995 in a purpose-built 15,000 sq. foot exhibition hall beside Bo'ness Station. The building has 850ft of display tracks, on which stand a wide variety of vehicles, mainly goods wagons illustrating the diversity of traffic which the railways once carried. Coal, seed potatoes, fish, wooden crates and barrels, gunpowder and even an Army tank, general and special wagons for these and other goods are presented for the enjoyment of visitors.

Display boards provide background information and period photographs show the railway as it was when the wagons were built. And you can try to imagine what it was like to ride at the end of the Carlisle freight in the Caledonian Railway brake van!
