Railway Ride!

IMG_1049 EDITThis week our group of youngsters headed down to Hythe for a special train trip!

This wasn’t a usual train journey into town or to the capital, it was a more scenic ride. We boarded the steam train from the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway (RH&DR)…

We disembarked at New Romney for a look around the train museum and it was great to hear Billy share his insightful knowledge of trains and transport at just age 10! The group also had some fun with the free quiz to spot various items such as Daleks and Dinosaurs within the huge model railway on display.

We then caught the train back to Hythe to purchase some gifts in the shop to remind us of our day.

“I’ve never been on a steam train before – it was smaller than I thought it was going to be!” Sophia
