This week (16th-22nd November)

This weekend’s Work Weekend is the last before Santa Specials start running in December. A Works Train will depart Sittingbourne Viaduct station at 10am, returning at about 4pm. There is plenty of work to be carried out so everyone is welcome to come along and help out – tools, training and lunch will be provided.

The Away Sales Team will be spending the weekend at The Festival of Model Railways & Hobbies at Southend Leisure & Tennis Centre. This is a great exhibition that showcases all sorts of miniature modelling and always has a great selection of layouts.

It’s a busy month for the Away Sales Team as the following weekend we are double-booked:

The Railway reopens in December for the very popular Santa Specials – the train will whisk you from Sittingbourne Viaduct station to Kemsley Down where Santa and Mrs Christmas meet the train and lead everyone to the Footplate Café where hot drinks and seasonal refreshments will be given to the adults and older children whilst the younger children visit Santa’s Grotto where they will be able to speak to Father Christmas before choosing a quality toy from a wide selection exclusive only to the grotto – these toys will not be available to purchase in the Railway Shop. After Santa has been visited and the season refreshments consumed, there is time to explore Kemsley Down before the train returns to Sittingbourne Viaduct.
