Swindon DMUs finding regular use at Bo’ness

THE Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway now operates its sole-surviving Swindon-built Inter-City DMU once every month.

It is used on the 15.35 from Bo’ness to Manuel and return on the last service of the day, and is seen on June 10 following return to Bo’ness. Once the passengers have alighted the set runs back out of the station accessing the yard via the crossover.

With power car No. Sc51017 leading, it returns to the building where it is kept under cover between its monthly outings.

The Class 126 has benefited from Heritage Lottery funding with the obligation of being seen in regular public use rather than being kept on permanent static display.
