Steam Trains to Groombridge Only

23rd & 24th March Hopefully using Andrew Barclay No. 2315 'Lady Ingrid'

Take a steam and heritage diesel train ride through the High Weald to Groombridge!

Enjoy a train ride with a steam locomotive and a heritage diesel between Tunbridge Wells West and Groombridge, calling at High Rocks on days they are open. You can sit back and relax letting the train take the strain, which is perfect on those damp rainy moments or bright sunny days!  

We're taking you back to the Spa Valley Railway of the 2000s on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th March as it is hoped that subject to a successful test run recently overhauled Andrew Barclay No. 2315 'Lady Ingrid' will haul the trains over this weekend, in a complete change to the recent use of large steam locomotives. Why are we doing it? Because we can, no other reason!
