Littlehampton Minature Railway open day, February 3rd.

Littlehampton Minature Railway based in Littlehampton’s Mewsbrook Park is holding an open day on Saturday, 3rd February from 10am to 3pm.

Following the demise of the previous commercial operator in December 2015 (when it was decided that it was no longer commercially viable to run the minature trains), a new volunteer group, led by Chris Shanks was set up – Littlehampton Heritage Railway Association (LHRA).

This proactive and dedicated group of volunteers under the chairmanship of Chris Shanks has gone from strength to strength scooping an Arun Business Partnership Award for best charity 2017.

Looking for Volunteers.

The Littlehampton Heritage Railway Association are now looking for volunteers for the 2018 season to help with all aspects of the running of the railway.

So if you fancy becoming part of the station staff, a driver or a guard or to help out with the work in the workshop, Chris and his group would love to hear from you.

Plans are also underway to make the minature railway more accessible for disabled people.

This year, 2018, marks the 70th anniversary of the line being installed and the group are planning a gala weekend to celebrate this important milestone in Littlehampton minature railway’s history.

If you’re able and willing to volunteer, even for only one day a month, you can contact the Littlehampton heritage railway association station via their website.
