Road meets Rail

Our 2022 Road meets Rail event will be taking place 28 – 30 May at Horsted Keynes Station.

Last year it was a fabulous event in our calendar, and we are really pleased to welcome it back. Hop on and off trains all day with your event ticket. With this ticket you can start your journey at any of our four stations, but don’t forget to refer to the timetable for the day of travel so you can plan where and when you will catch your trains.

Saturday 28 & Sunday 29 May

Step back in time for a weekend of steam powered demonstrations and vintage fairground fun! Traction engines, road rollers, steam wagons, showman’s engines, crane engines and more… bringing Horsted Keynes station to life with recreations of a bygone age.

See how road building, wood sawing, timber haulage and lifting were carried out in the early 1900s. Experience fairground rides powered by a Showman’s engine. Watch as deliveries are made to the station by steam wagon, traction engine and pantechnicon.

We will be running the following loco’s on the Service D timetable.

Passenger Engine A will be 30541
Passenger Engine B will be 73082
Goods Engine will be D4106
Unfortunately 80151 is u/s as of 27/5, so we have moved 30541 onto Passenger Service A, D4106 will be replacing 30541 on shunting duties.

Live music on the afternoon of Saturday 28th is from L’escargots Trois

Live music on the afternoon of Sunday 29th is from The Roarin’ 20’s
