We are a small heritage railway deep in the Kent countryside, operated entirely by volunteers, once part of a large network of coal mines.

Today, visitors can ride lovingly restored heritage trains between the small leafy village of Shepherdswell and the idyllic village of Eythorne, near Dover in Kent, a distance of two miles.

The railway runs most Sundays throughout the year, with the exception of winter months, when a limited service may be in operation.
