Sunday 5th August – diesel power

Due to crew shortages we are unable to run the planned steam service on Sunday 5th August, instead diesel locomotives Victor (the original and only Bowaters narrow gauge diesel engine) and Barton Hall (a former armaments depot loco) will take turns to haul the trains.

The timetable remains the same – hourly 11am to 4pm from Sittingbourne Viaduct station.

If diesel engines are more your thing, you’ll be able to enjoy these engines on the main line outside of a Gala Weekend!

We apologise to passengers who were looking forward to a trip behind Leader. Fear not, Leader will be running on Wednesday as planned.
