Hastings Miniature Railway operates all year round with a 2 train service
throughout the summer season.
During School holidays and Bank Holidays there are usually 3 locomotives in
service, with steam running on most days.
The railway also has an annual Gala weekend on the first weekend of October
each year where you will find all the locomotives in service, multiple headed
trains, and a Grande Finale Header with all the locomotives on 1 train.
The Annual Galla weekend is also a charity weekend and on the Sunday the staff
and volunteers dress in fancy dress and the railway donates all
the proceeds to charity.
The railway also plays host to visiting locomotives from other railways from
time to time.
Whilst we try to stick to these days and times, sometimes due to unforeseen circumstances these may alter.
