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.


Please note

Whilst we try to stick to these days and times, sometimes due to unforeseen circumstances these may alter.
