How it all Began
Building The Railway
The Official Opening
THose  Early Years
The Post-War  Years
Sir William MacAlpine

After a near-death experience
a new consortium, headed by
Sir William McAlpine, saved
the day in 1973 and much investment has taken
place over the intervening years to ensure the railway
maintains its title as Kent’s Mainline in Miniature and
continues to uphold a high standard of customer service.
2017 saw Sir William look proudly upon some of his
many achievements when, for the RH&DR 90th
anniversary, Typhoon was paired with Flying Scotsman
at the Bluebell Railway.

After many years dedicated to the RH&DR as Chairman
of the Board and serving many other communities
Sir William McAlpine passed away in 2018.

The RH&DR Association also plays a key part in
supporting the railway both financially and with volunteer
staff throughout the year in various departments. Captain
Howey commissioned Greenly to build a railway that
would last his life time. We, today who still enjoy the
RH&DR, must be eternally grateful to Greenly that it did
just that. We must also applaud those that have since
maintained and restored Greenly's work and instigated
many new projects that ensure the railway steams
through this new century and towards its own 100 year
landmark with vigour and enthusiasm.
