Climb aboard for a journey back in time along the historic East Kent Railway.

Once a thriving industrial line serving the Kent Coalfield, the four mile round trip takes you on a scenic journey between the pretty villages of Shepherdswell and Eythorne. Rolling countryside, steep chalk-lined cuttings and the fascinating Golgotha Tunnel makes this a visit to be remembered.

The East Kent Railway is also home to two Signal Boxes, one from Barham on the old Elham Valley Line and another from Selling, near Faversham. Both signal boxes house interesting displays on the history of the EKR. The Walmer Model Railway Club are also at the railway and they have an exciting model display in a beautiful LMS coach.

Also calling the East Kent Railway home are the EPB Preservation Group, Southern Electric Group and the Trolley Bus Group. The railway runs trains on most Sundays throughout the year, with the exception of winter months, when a limited service may be in operation.

Please check the timetable for further details or visit our timetable and events pages for details of all train times and events throughout the year. The railway itself is open for woodland walks along with the cafes Tuesday to Sundays.
