15th and 16th Sept 2018

FREE entry and extra activities on this weekend for MHRPS members and shareholders of the Mid Hants Railway Ltd and Wadebridge shareholders. 
We run a two steam passenger service along with the MHRPS's DEMU Hampshire Unit. In addition, we will also be running our heritage freight train with rides available in the brake van for a small donation.

At Medstead our Wagon Department will be providing tours of work in progress there. Tours will take place throughout the day, times TBC. To join a tour please wait at the Wagon Group sales stand on the London bound (UP) platform, where a representative will meet all those interested.

View our renovated Goods Store at Medstead hosting a new exhibition titled 'Delivering the Goods'. This will be formally opened by Lord Montagu of Beaulieu on Sunday 17th.

Visitors can also view our current restoration projects in the yard at Ropley and from the Engineering Shed Viewing Gallery. The viewing galleries will also be open in our Carriage Workshop and Boilershop, with tours available to find out more about what the railway does.
