This week (2nd-8th October)
The Railway is now closed until Santa Specials in December. That’s not to say that nothing’s happening – we will be holding Work Weekends every fortnight from this weekend. A Work Train will depart Sittingbourne Viaduct station at 10am, returning at about 4pm. Tools, training, lunch and refreshments will be provided.
On Wednesdays, our Gardening, Carriage & Wagon and Permanent Way (track) maintenance teams meet to work on various projects. The Permanent Way return on Sundays. The Locomotive Engineering team meet regularly but it is best to email firstname.lastname@example.org for the dates they will be on site.
Work Weekends will be held on the following dates:
- 7/8 October
- 21/22 October
- 4/5 November
- 18/19 November
