This week (31st January – 6th February)

The next Work Weekend is Saturday/Sunday 12/13th February. 

There’s a lot of work to be carried out at the Railway before we reopen in April.

We work from 10am until 4pm and will be working on several projects from a coach rebuild and building repairs to getting our oldest narrow gauge steam locomotive, Premier, back in service.

If you would like to help out, please email to arrange access as we will be working at Kemsley Down.

A big thank you to everyone who attended the Work Weekend last weekend – here are photos of some of the work being undertaken at Kemsley Down:

2022 Calendar

We also have a number of calendars still available to purchase – they cost £7 (including post & packing) – and can be ordered here. Anyone can order them, they are not restricted to our members.

They feature details of the train service as well as a large notes area and information about the Railway. They have A5 pages so open out to A4 size. Here are some photos:
