Bo’ness & Kinneil Class 27 makes long journey to Kent

THE Class 27 Locomotive Group’s No. 27001 received attention at Bo’ness prior to making an extended visit to the Spa Valley Railway in Kent (RM June, p93). 

It is seen outside the Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway’s modern motive power depot at Bo’ness on
July 12, ready for departure, set for the 29th.


The Sulzer Type 2 stars at the Spa Valley’s August 2-4 diesel gala, and will remain on the Kent line throughout August. 

It will return to Scotland after the last summer bank holiday weekend and will not appear at any other English railway during its time in the south. IAN LOTHIAN
