Whilst all is quiet at the Watercress Line our bears have been popping in to help out as our engineers, station staff and train crews have to stay home to help us all stay safe.

Each week we have a new set of activities, word games, colouring and facts sheet for you to download.


The bears and all our staff are really sorry not to have had the chance to meet any of our usual school visitors at Ropley this summer.

They would like you to know how much they have missed you and have organised a writing competition for pupils in year R to year 5 with a super prize.

The competition winner can bring their whole class to the railway for an education visit during the next school year!

The bears are still busy checking everything out so that we can start running again soon.

During the sunny weather they oiled the valve on the water column on the Ropley platform.


I donít think Bailey quite understood the job, instead of his work wear he has his bathers on and is waiting for a shower!

This weeks activity sheet is about the real job of the water column, watering engines.

No not that sort of watering,
