50th Anniversaries

The Railway is celebrating the last of three 50th anniversaries this year:

  • October 2019 – anniversary of the handover of the Bowaters Light Railway to the Locomotive Club of Great Britain
  • March/April 2020 – anniversary of the first public trains
  • 2022 – anniversary of the creation of the Sittingbourne & Kemsley Light Railway for the operation and maintenance of the Railway – we have changed the timetable to try out some new things and we have also moved Steam & Beer forward a week

We are looking for your memories of visiting or working at the Railway from paper railway to preserved railway, as worker or visitor or passenger. We are looking at various options for using your memories over the next few years.

If you are donating physical objects or digital files, please describe them and we will get back to you.
