Work Weekends

We really need your help to maintain and repair everything at the Railway from the track to the buildings, the gardens to the locomotives and carriages, so we have planned a number of Work Weekends.

We usally meet at Sittingbourne Viaduct station, however, due to the internal road network at Kemsley Paper Mill being remodelled adjacent to Kemsley Down station, it may not be possible to run Works Trains. If you would like to help, and you are more than welcome to, please email info@sklr.net by Friday for details of where and when to meet.

Tools, training, tea/coffee and lunch (when we’re at Kemsley Down) will be provided and non-members are welcome to help out too!

Please dress in layers of clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty or ruined, if you have a ‘trade’ please advise us beforehand as we may have a specific requirement for your skills – email info@sklr.net
