The Scottish Industrial Railway Centre
Our aim is to preserve and operate those small and versatile industrial steam and diesel locomotives – known to generations of Scots as ‘Pugs’ – in a similar environment to the one in which they spent their working lives.
Visitors can see our collection of steam and diesel locomotives (including our unique working ‘Fireless’ locomotive built by local firm Andrew Barclay, Sons & Co. Ltd. of Kilmarnock) with strong connections to Scottish industry of the past. The Fireless steam locomotive has now been restored to full working order, and was demonstrated at Dunaskin for the first time in over ten years in July 2015.
