About

Take a step back in time with a visit to the K&ESR - experience the 40s lifestyle as the railway turns back the clock to wartime Britain. Why not join in the fun and come in your own 1940s finery!

Enjoy live music at Tenterden and Bodiam, vintage stalls, 40s hairstylist and period civilian and military vehicles. Keep a look out for 'Viv the Spiv' with his black market goods!

Collect your free identity card before immersing yourself in the nostalgic 40s atmosphere created by the re-enactors, performers and authentic 1940s displays.

A variety of attractions are planned for each station. The Lindy Hoppers and 1940s singers will be performing throughout the weekend.
