The Railway is now closed until Santa Specials in December. The Away Sales Team is split between model railway exhibitions at Broadstairs and Southend at the eekend and we will be attending the Swale Volunteers Fair at Phoenix House in Sittingbourne on Friday.

This weekend is also our next Work Weekend, a Works Train will depart at 10am, returning at about 4pm. Everyone’s welcome to help out, check the Work Weekend page for more details.
