COVID-19
Following a review of our capacity with social distancing we're delighted to announce that customers can travel all day and board or alight at any of our stations! High Rocks, Groombridge and Eridge will all re-open on and from Saturday 29th May along for full boarding and alighting to explore the surrounding areas too. This includes all of our June services too. 

Regular cleaning of our train door handles and other surfaces is taking place throughout the day and passengers are required to wear a facemask unless medically excempt whilst sat in an Open Carriage on inside our buildings, masks can be removed if seated in compartment coaches and the door is closed. 

How does it work?
Passengers do not have to pre-book unless they would like a guaranteed seat for a complete return trip without a break of journey.

On this website you can book one return trip and be allocated seats for one return trip, if you choose to alight at one of our stations we cannot guarantee you the same allocated seats for your return journey and you may need to sit elsewhere on the train. Your ticket is valid all day but your seat allocations only for one complete return trip without a break in your journey. 

Enthusiasts or visitors can travel all day if they wish but your allocated seating will only be for the one return trip you book - i.e. 10:30 out and back, the following trip you may be required to sit in another carriage where we've spare capacity.
