Our 2022 Road meets Rail event will be taking place 28 – 30 May at Horsted Keynes Station.
Last year it was a fabulous event in our calendar, and we are really pleased to welcome it back. Hop on and off trains all day with your event ticket. With this ticket you can start your journey at any of our four stations, but don’t forget to refer to the timetable for the day of travel so you can plan where and when you will catch your trains.
Saturday 28 & Sunday 29 May
Step back in time for a weekend of steam powered demonstrations and vintage fairground fun! Traction engines, road rollers, steam wagons, showman’s engines, crane engines and more… bringing Horsted Keynes station to life with recreations of a bygone age.
See how road building, wood sawing, timber haulage and lifting were carried out in the early 1900s. Experience fairground rides powered by a Showman’s engine. Watch as deliveries are made to the station by steam wagon, traction engine and pantechnicon.
Monday 30 May
It’s Miniature Monday!
When the small but mighty traction engines, road rollers and locomotives take over! See scale models of all sizes and marvel at these perfectly formed feats of engineering.
All Three Days
Steam hauled passenger trains will be passing through the station and a goods train will be shunting in and out amid the activity! Musical entertainment will feature across the weekend providing a great atmosphere. It’s steam at its best; both on and off the rails! Suitable for all ages.
Enjoy delicious food in the paddock or visit the beer tent to sample some popular Sussex ales. And if you fancy dressing up for the event, feel free to don some 1920’s gear and immerse yourself fully in the vintage atmosphere of the weekend. We’ll be keeping an eye out for the best outfits!
