Grovehurst Dockside Miniature Railway
The Grovehurst Dockside Miniature Railway runs parallel to the Saxon Shore Way and the Milton Creek fence-line at Kemsley Down. It’s station, Creekside, is located behind the Footplate Café, close to the pedestrian entrance to the Railway.
This isn’t the first 5-inch gauge ride-on railway at this location, there was one here before from the late-1990s through to the Railway’s temporary closure in 2008.
The locomotive, coaches and track are all new. The locomotive is named ‘Lily’. The name has been chosen to commemorate Lil Chisman who was a long-time member of the Railway with her husband Keith. Sadly, Lil and her husband Keith have since passed away.
The section that has opened represents three years of work and £4,000 investment by individual members. The Railway has not paid for this new attraction. It will, like the Railway, be operated by volunteers – if you are interested in helping, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
