Coronavirus COVID-19

It is with deepest regret that we have to announce the Eastbourne Miniature Steam Railway will not re-open on Saturday 4th April. We are delaying the start of our 2020 season until further notice.

As everyone is fully aware, the Government is requesting we distance ourselves socially and avoid contact with others to help protect the more vulnerable people in our community and relieve pressure on the NHS. We all need to play our part in this.

We will re-open to the public as soon as it is safe to do so. Please check this page for updates. For enquiries please email If you have membership with us please read below.

Finally, we would like to thank all of our visitors for your continued support and we can't wait to see you all as soon as it is safe to open. Take care everyone.

Annual Pass Holders:
If you have an annual pass that is due to expire after 4th April 2020, please keep hold of it as we will be extending the dates on these for the time you have missed out on. Also, any train tickets, gift vouchers and prize tickets will all still be valid when we re-open.

Angling Memberships:
If you have already renewed your membership, we will be extending the expiry date to compensate for the time you will miss.
If you have not renewed yet, please keep hold of your renewal letter and you will be able to re-join once the Angling re-opens.
