The last eighteen months have been very busy year at KSE in terms of capital works and our workshop and engine shed have progressed well. Last year we had very limited train services due to the sheer extent of work which included a complete re-design of track on the site. Our volunteers that run the special events and train services are heavily involved in the capital works so we had to limited our events program for 2017. 

Our resident steam locomotive had to undergo its five yearly hydraullic test in addition to the usual boiler certification. As a result of this work we still have not been able to commission FC Tingey for Easter but will run a number of steam operating days in 2018.

All the dates above are confirmed and we aim to run steam trains on the days indicated but occasionally we may have to substitute it for diesel hauled trains. Our Facebook page holds the most up to date information about events and you are advised to check this before setting off. 

The train timetable for operational days  is 10-30 to 4PM with services running on the half hour with additional services as required. The trip is currently over a total distance of one mile and we aim to extend the line in the future. 

Admission to all other events are free with charges for train rides.
