Sit back with your locally produced tipple and enjoy your ride behind a historic steam locomotive and watch the delightful countryside of the Rother Valley roll past. Enjoy a tasty hot meal served during the journey and on arrival at the picturesque Bodiam Station there will be live music to entertain you.
“Following the popularity of this new product in 2016, we are delighted to offer a variety of dates for this year to showcase what the Kent & East Sussex Railway and our partners do best. Why not bring friends for a fun evening of food, drink and music whilst enjoying a steam train ride?” Says Product and Reservations Manager Helen Douglas
