Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Weekend (Thursday 2nd – Sunday 5th June)

We’ll be getting the bunting out and posing for selfies with our cardboard cut-out to celebrate HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Weekend.

Trains will be running to the orange timetable all weekend with trains being hauled by Melior as Leader retires in May.

On Thursday evening we will be holding a special event – our first Fish & Chips Supper. This will be a pre-booked event due to the restricted passenger numbers we will be carrying. The train to Kemsley Down will depart Sittingbourne Viaduct station at 6pm.

On Saturday and Sunday we’ll be holding Edward Bear’s Teddy Bears Picnic so feel free to bring a picnic along or buy drinks and snacks at the Footplate Café.
