We visited the railway on a very cold day between Christmas and New Year with friends and family and it was a great day for all. The steam trains are in fantastic order and the staff are so helpful and full of knowledge to answer all the questions we had. We travelled from Dymchurch to Dungeness Power Station. We had... More

We have been coming to the railway for many years and our train ride yesterday, 2/1/17, as unique was ever. In recent years we have made a point of coming at New Year for a treat of fish and chips. We were very disappointed to arrive at around 12pm at Dungeness to be told we could only have chips, stew... More

Wonderful ride on the train, well organised event at the other end, with Santa arriving on a steam train for all the kids to see, and then groups split up to avoid congestion with refreshments (mulled wine, sausage roll and mince pie per person) all included in the...

Went on the Santa special today and we all had a fantastic time. The children's faces when they saw Santa arrive on his sleigh, pulled by The Bug train was magical. This was matched by exicement when it started to 'snow'. The whole event was very well run and all staff made the event enjoyable. I have been on other... More

Like being on a miniature Hogwarts train! Definitely not a fast way of travel, but is not intended for that. Great to visit the nearby towns and sight see. Beautiful beaches too!

After taking our then 8 year old grandson on the Santa Special last year, we decided to repeat it again this year. It followed much the same format as last year. A ride down to New Romney, wait for Santa to arrive in his sleigh and then go to one of 3 areas. We were in the first group to... More
