The East Kent Railway Trust is a charitable trust. We operate the East Kent Light Railway to preserve it and restore rolling stock, infrastructure and display items of interest from the past.

Operating the railway and keeping it in good order for visitors is expensive. We really appreciate all donations big and small to help bolster the finances of the trust.

If you have a physical item you’d like to donate please email
Or get in touch via our contact form.

All of our working members are volunteers and we have no paid staff, all monies donated are invested back into the railway.

Thank you from all of us at East Kent Railway.
