The Romney Hythe And Dymchurch Railway

A Mainline In Miniature

Although I'm a great steam fan and make frequent visits to preserved railways the greatest thing for me about the RHDR is that's it's not a preserved railway at all - it's a railway that just kept going down the years (sometimes only just), more or less as it was when built. This is not a place where displaced steam leviathons trundle meekly up and down at limited speeds with a few odd coaches in tow; this is the mainline, albeit shrunk to 15" guage, where the locos work flat out to earn their keep.

The RHDR have their own web site with all the history, timetables etc and there would be no point in reproducing it's contents here. So here are a few facts, my personal opinions and recommendations and some photographs I've taken down the years. Take your pick!
