At the Bo'ness home of Scotlands railway heritage they are hosting a project aimed at transforming the future of the rail industry.
A retired ScotRail Class 314 electric set was transported by road from its depot in Glasgow to the Boness & Kinneil Railway where it will be converted to hydrogen-powered - a cleaner, greener alternative to diesel for non-electrified routes.

The work is part of a Scottish Enterprise project, in partnership with Transport Scotland and the University of St Andrews Hydrogen Accelerator, to bring skills for the future of the rail industry into the Scottish supply chain and create opportunities for businesses based here.
