 Steam Locomotive NCB No. 10 - the regular working locomotive at Dunaskin - has passed its annual hydraulic exam, and will now be prepared for its steam test by the end of the month.


Since the boiler inspector will be on site anyway, the opportunity to have our Firless steam locomotive steam tested will be taken at the same time, and this now means the Scottish Industrial Railway Centre will open to the public over the weekend of Sunday 29th & Monday 30th May 2016.


East Ayrshire Countryside Ranger to join forces with ARPG on Sunday 29th May.


Join the Countryside Rangers for a walk and explore the area around the Scottish Industrial Railway Centre at Dunaskin.


We'll be taking  a closer look at wildlife with fun nature activities, and the walks are suitable for families and off - road buggies. Please make sure you wear suitable footwear and clothing.


The walks commence at Dunaskin Visitor Centre at 12 noon and 2pm for approx one hour in duration.


Please watch this space for further updates.
