Our First School Visit

Today, we entertained P6 & P7 children from Bellsbank Primary School. Our first ever school visit to Dunaskin, it was most appropriately one of the Doon Valley schools that attended on a wild and windy day. Nevertheless, the rain stayed away, and everyone seems to have enjoyed their visit.

No. 10 was steamed specially for the school children, so that they could experience a short trip in our passenger carrying brakevan. They were also given a tour of the Loco Shed by our Chairman Archie Thom, and had a short lesson in the Museum Room, courtesy of Catriona Thom.

This is the first ever visit of a school to Dunaskin, but it will certainly not be the last. Already plans are afoot to arrange a number of School visits during our 2016 season.

The Group would like to thank Kilmarnock Engineering and Science Society for organising and funding this event, it is much appreciated.
