Please Note: Horsted Keynes Station is currently undergoing restoration work as part of the “Jewel In The Crown Project“, this will inevitably cause some disruption at the station over the coming weeks. We are ensuring disabled access to Platforms 3 and 4 will always be available.

The King George V Buffet is not guaranteed to be open during this time, so you may wish to have your own provisions just in case.

Opening Times

Please our timetables page for all services.

SERVICE NOTICE: Due to expected hot weather, up to and including Tuesday 16th August, we will be running an amended diesel service on our service trains, subject to weather conditions changing.

The service will be operating between Sheffield Park and Horsted Keynes ONLY. Kingscote and East Grinstead stations will be CLOSED on these days with no service operating at these stations between these dates.

This is due to expected high temperatures for the remainder of this week. These measures have been put in place to reduce the risk of trackside fires. We hope you understand this alteration to our services.

A safety inspection of the line will be carried out daily to assess if our steam services can resume safely and if the whole length of our railway can be reopened.

An amended timetable will be in operation during this time and can be found here.

Please note our stations are closed when we are not running trains.
