For the past 90 years the railway has been an integral part of the landscape of Romney Marsh. Known as 'Kent’s Mainline in Miniature', the world famous one-third full size steam & diesel locomotives have powered their way along the 13½ miles of track from the Cinque Port town of Hythe, terminating in Dungeness.
