Bo'ness & Kinneil Railway college assignment

On this day, I visited the Bo'ness & Kinneil Railway to take some photos for a college assignment for which I had to compile and illustrate a promotional pamphlet for a commercial concern. I didn't feel my efforts were very successful at the time, but in retrospect and with the ability to view things more objectively, I realise I got some nice and interesting photos of the railway in operation.
