Road meets Rail

Traditional steam fair featuring working traction engine displays, miniature engines, goods trains and a steam driven children’s fair.

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

The working steam event returns! Featuring working traction engines – come and see what these powerful giants were actually designed for.

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.

We bring road steam and rail steam together for a weekend of enjoyment and interest, suitable for all ages! 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. Steam hauled passenger trains will be passing through the station and a goods train will be shunting in and out amid the activity!

Prices TBC

Tickets will be available to book later in 2022.
