The East Kent Railway Trust has been very lucky to be offered the chance to purchase a diesel multiple unit straight from the mainline.

We are raising money to fund this purchase and facilitate its move from its depot to us around late March.

The DMU will be able to give the railway a really reliable piece of equipment that has more seats to help cope with passenger demand on busier days and will secure the long term operation of the railway.

Can you help us raise the funds required?

We are also recruiting more volunteers for our 2020 season. With so many improvements and new attractions coming online we need your help!

Drop us a message to find out more or you can donate via our Facebook page.
