Happy 40th Anniversary to the Mid Hants Railway

Join us this Bank Holiday weekend (29th April - 1st May) to help us celebrate our 40th Anniversary since reopening as one of the UK’s most popular heritage railway.

Throughout the weekend we have a display at Ropley Viewing Gallery showing us how we have developed as a heritage railway over the last 40 years.

Come and explore behind the scenes at our engineering hub at Ropley on Saturday 29th April. Find out what it takes to restore and maintain steam locomotives and get up close to these magnificent engines. Tours take place at 11.30, 12.30, 1.30, 2.30, 3.20.

Look out for the Mid Hants Railway headboard on the 11am, 1pm and 3pm trains leaving Alresford on Sunday 30th April.
