BO'NESS TRAIN STATION - WW

WORDLESS WEDNESDAY


 
The view I had in our bus, during the whole trip


*********

The second day of our tour we stopped in Bo'ness  to ride on this old steam train through the very green landscape. Unfortunately the day was a little grey but even so our eyes hurt with all this green and afterwards somebody baptized this journey "the green trip". Not even a white cow or some sheep interrupted the green trees and grass.

The Bo’ness and Kinneil Railway is a heritage railway in Bo'ness, near Edinburgh, Scotland. It is operated by the Scottish Railway Preservation Society, and operates a total of over 8 km (5 miles) of track (between Bo'ness and Manuel Junction, via Kinneil and Birkhill),



Besides the green landscape we expected to see something special, but after the 8 km the train stopped and made the same way back with another steam engine.




Fortunately the station was very nice and time had stood still here



I had never thought that a station could look real cute



There were pick nick tables but unfortunately it was a little too cold for that.


There also was a restaurant and a shop.



Very old luggages showed us with what people used to travel !



Unfortunately the museum was closed.






After having admired the old engines, and walked a little around we quickly returned to our warm bus, it was really cold this day in August !

Such a shame the museum was closed, the vintage luggage was amazing to see.

It sounds like a very interesting tour, but what the heck was horrible Donald Trump sitting in front of you with his horrible hair?

Had to laugh at your view on the bus. :D That is a quaint train station with the picket fence. Too bad it was too cold to enjoy it is much as you might. Nothing like riding a train, everyone should experience it.
