A Caledonian train to enjoy

An episode of Great Coastal Railway Journeys due to be transmitted on Tuesday 25th January 2022 on BBC2 at 6.30pm features Michael Portillo, CR419 and the Caley coaches on the Bo'ness & Kinneil Railway. Some good shots of the cab and firing, with some rather nice aerial views of Caledonian Train.

Mind you, I wince at the description which accompanies the trailer at

" Michael savours the smuts on board the Caledonian Blue.
There's fire in Michael’s boiler as he relishes the smuts puffing from the chimney of the Caledonian Blue locomotive, belonging to the heritage Bo’ness and Kinneil Railway."

But you can't have everything.
