Miniature & Steam Railways

Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway
Really worth a visit and a ride! 15-inch gauge working railway with fleet of one third scale steam and diesel locomotives. Take a train from Dungeness to New Romney (visit the charming but tiny railway museum) and then take the train back again to Dungeness and eat egg and chips at the railway cafe there! Alternatively, take the train from New Romney to Dymchurch and visit the small and old-fashioned fun fair there (smaller kids love it), and take the train back again.
