This fully-guided day tour provides visitors with a fascinating
insight into the role RH&DR played during the Second World
War when the railway was taken over by the military.
Plus of course a journey aboard a train hauled by one of our
world-famous Miniature Steam Locomotives.
Our highly knowledgeable historian, dressed in 1940’s
costume, will meet you at Hythe Station where you will be
offered tea or coffee before taking your seats in reserved
carriages on the 10.30 departure to New Romney.
Upon arrival, your guide will escort you to our very own
mini 1940s cinema/exhibition for your private viewing.
You will learn much of the role of the railway in WW2 and all
about the construction of Pluto (Pipe Line Under the Ocean).
Our replica Armoured Train will also be on display.
Your lunch will be served in the Heywood Buffet at New Romney
Station at 12.00. Following lunch, you board the service train
to Dungeness where your guide will provide you with another
captivating presentation and afternoon tea at approximately 3.00.
Your return train from Dungeness departs at either 3.40
on the Green service or 3.30 on the Pink service, both
arriving back in Hythe by 4.50.
