95th Anniversary Special

Join us to celebrate our 95th Anniversary.

The official opening of the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway took place on 16th July 1927, with Hercules hauling that inaugural train from Hythe to New Romney. When first opened to the public the line only covered, in double track, the eight miles between Hythe and New Romney. Owner Captain Jack Howey soon had his eye on extending the line and in 1928 double tracks carried the trains to Dungeness via Greatstone.
