The Lavender Line
Throughout February at the Lavender line we will be running service trains every Sunday during the month, this will be an all diesel service which will most likely be hauled by our resident diesel ‘Valiant’ with the toad brake van or our Wickham railbus which allows you a fantastic 360 degree view
There is no steam service during February due to our resident steam engine ‘Austin 1’ is out of traffic for winter maintenance, although she may be used for Clive Groomes famous footplate courses on selected Saturdays. Our Cinders buffet will be open as usual from 8.30 onwards allowing you to enjoy one of our famous full English breakfasts to start your day.
Our first steam day will be on Sunday 25th March; this is also one of our new goods trains days where we run a selected amount of wagons and a brake van allowing you to enjoy and unlimited day of train rides in our cosy toad brake van. This day like all of our steam days we will be running our footplate tasters; this will give you the opportunity to ride with the driver and fireman for one round trip for the small fee of just £5.00! If you enjoy the experience why not sign yourself up for one of Clive Groomes footplate courses which runs on selected Saturdays throughout the year.
From Monday 13th to Friday 17th February we will be running our half term specials with all tickets just £5.00! This is a great way to have an afternoon out in the countryside, why not take a trip up to the Lavender line during this week and take a advantage of our extra low prices and unlimited rides! This service will be operated by our unique Wickham railbus where you can enjoy the beautiful Sussex countryside. Keep an eye out for our brand new station at little horsted, ‘Worth halt’ which will be opening for the summer season!
