A team of rail enthusiasts are in the midst of plans to join the Tenterden-Bodiam heritage steam railway from Robertsbridge. Huw Merriman and Greg Barker MP joined the team to assess progress and ride on the first stage of the new line.
The team hope to purchase further land and convince the Highways and Environment Agencies that plans to build a level-crossing across the A21 will not cause delays to traffic or increase flooding risks. Huw said “The Rother Valley Rail team have a great vision for a fantastic new attraction and day-out for residents and visitors alike. Their enthusiasm is infectious. There are clearly big challenges to overcome but I wish the team well with their endeavours.”
