Came here as a child with my grandmother over 25 years ago. Now here with my daughter!

The narrow gauge Quarry Railway, is a 2 foot gauge steam railway running for approximately 1.5 miles through woodland and fields. The journey starts at the station by the visitor centre, and travels through pretty woodland until it reaches the old sandstone quarry.
After a pause to take in the spectacular views across the Sussex Weald, the journey continues through woodland and alongside fields, where horses often graze.
The railway has two steam and one diesel locomotives. Even the passenger carriages are historic, coming from the long closed Ramsgate Electric Tunnel Railway. One of the carriages has a wheelchair compartment, and a ramp is available at the station.
