    On the evening of Tuesday 11th and in the early hours of Wednesday 12th August, much of Scotland was battered by severe thunderstorms. During a subsequent inspection of the Bo’ness Kinneil Railway, the Scottish Railway Preservation Society Civil Engineer identified multiple landslips along approximately a mile-long stretch of the railway. The line was declared unfit for traffic and the railway closed to passenger trains. The worst of the landslips had occurred on a steep embankment near ‘High Bridge’. A geo-structural engineer has inspected the site and we have since estimated that this damage may cost over £100,000 to repair. Note: that engineering trains will still operate to facilitate repairs: So Please do not trespass on the railway. Latest - Repair works have now commenced further reports on progress will be posted soon.
