The Railway is closed until Good Friday but there's lots of work to be carried out before then. We will be holding Work Weekends every fortnight until we reopen. 

This video was taken at the end of a Sittingbourne Viaduct-based Work Weekend and the train is returning tools etc to Kemsley Down. 

Due to essential maintenance on Milton Regis Viaduct we may have to meet at Kemsley Paper Mill rather than Sittingbourne Viaduct station - click here for more information.

This is the long awaited first part of Podcast #6!

As it's a new year I have started with an introduction to the Railway and a brief history of the line.

The majority of this podcast was recorded in the Bar Car at Kemsley Down in January (on a very cold day!) so the sound quality isn't as good as my Snowball microphone, also it finishes rather abruptly but that was due to a corruption in the recorded file, as it was so close to the end it worked out okay. You'll notice that I don't look at the camera much - sorry about that, I'm not being rude but my autocue program had broken down, also I was intending to use this as a commentary track but actually quite enjoyed the interaction, perhaps the Bar Car (or other coach) could be my studio in the future!

Each part will be uploaded as soon as it is done - due to the amount of news, Part 3 may turn into a full blown news programme!
