Events within 30 miles of Littlehampton
Spring Industrial Trains
23 May 2021 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm
Our first event of 2021 is one of our popular railway events. Our Rail Volunteers will be providing plenty of action from our narrow-gauge collection.
There will be four trains choreographed to run together at once, including two freight trains and two passenger trains.
Polar Bear, a 1905 Steam Locomotive, will haul the first steam train at Amberley Museum in over six months, pulling the Groudle Glen passenger carriages. The second passenger train will be pulled by a diesel locomotive.
Watch and photograph a selection of our industrial locomotives haul our historic wagons around the Museum’s narrow-gauge railway.
Our industrial monorail system will be demonstrated throughout the day. ‘Burt’, our diesel locomotive, similar to the engine that worked at the chalk pits on the standard gauge railway in the 1950s, will also be in action.
