Myself and Steve Wright will be working down the East Kent Railway on all three days of the gala (27th, 28th and 29th August) and most of the stock will be running, including the EPB, MLVs, Thumper, 101 etc. You never know, even the resident Class 412 BEP might make an appearance! You have to be here to find out! Why not come down and enjoy the traction, with an intensive timetable you should have lots of fun! The extension to Wigmore Lane will also be opening on the Sunday so why not be one of the first people to ever ride it!? By Car From the A2 Between Canterbury and Dover, take the turning at the traffic lights sign posted for Shepherds Well. Continue down this road into the village and you will pass a small shop on your left. Go over the railway bridge and take the next left, sign posted for the East Kent Railway. From the A256 Between Sandwich and Whitfield, take the turning for Eythorne at the roundabout on the section between Tilmanstone and Whitfield. Continue along this road through the village of Eythorne. Further along this road you will go over a level crossing. Continue for about 400 yards and turn right sign posted for the EKR.
