Join us for this fun-filled experience, sure to enthral all young enthusiasts keen to learn more about the workings of the Railway. Chris Vine, author of the Peters Railway books, will lead the sessions, sharing his passion for all things engineering!

  • Journey along the line behind a steam locomotive ! Climb onto the footplate and learn for yourself about how it works.
  • Enjoy ‘behind the scenes’ tours of our locomotive workshop at Rolvenden, to see where our engines are restored and maintained and later visit our Carriage & Wagon workshop at Tenterden.
  • Take home a free copy of a Peter’s Railway books personally signed by the Author! One for every young engineer.
  • Enjoy a FREE return journey to Bodiam on the day or another day of your choice.

Suitable for ages 6-12. All children must be accompanied by one adult.

Price for one child and one accompanying adult include all of the above activities and a voucher for free return train journey to Bodiam – all for just £49! Please note that adding one ticket to your basket includes the experience for one adult and one child.

Additional “freedom” travel tickets may be purchased for that day allowing other family members to travel along the line between Tenterden and Bodiam; however these don’t include access to the behind the scenes tours.

Due to the nature of this activity, a certain level of physical ability is required. Please come suitably dressed for visiting working areas of a heritage railway including sensible shoes.  Hi-vis vests will be provided for participants.

Time: AM session:10:00 – 13.30 and  PM session: 13.00 – 16.30
