CILT regional event with Kevin McCallum

Date: 22 August 2017
Location: Scottish Railway Preservation Society, Bo'ness and Kinneil Railway, Bo'ness, West Lothian, EH51 9AQ
Organised by: Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport

CILT are holding an event entitled “Turkish Delight: the restoration of No. 45170” by Kevin McCallum.

Built by the North British Locomotive Company in 1942 as one of 250 Stanier-style 2-8-0 locos in a War Department order for Turkish Railways, no 45170 is “Scotland’s 8F”, and an appeal for her restoration has raised over £120,000 in two years. Further progress will depend on success in fundraising.

The event will start at 12:00 and will take place on 22 August.

The event is free to attend but booking is required. To book your place, please email  using the reference code SR0413.
