All Aboard for A Fun Day Out

Museum of Scottish Railways

Soak up the atmosphere of this heritage railway, travel by steam train and explore Scotland's largest railway museum. Listen for the whistles and watch for the green flag as you experience the sights, sounds and smells of old fashioned train travel. 

See Scotland’s only Royal Saloon coach, learn why the Fish Van has a sloping floor, come face-to-face with a mechanical horse and much more.
