Southeastern Trains will be holding an open day at their Ramsgate depot on Saturday 8th June 2019. Tickets are now sold out.

Ticketholders will get the chance to see some legends of the rails including an EWS class 66 and steam locomotive 35028 ‘Clan Line’.

The full locomotive lineup can be found below. Actual lineup may change closer to the time if locomotives fail beforehand etc.

35028 Clan Line Ramsgate Depot Open Day

35028 Clan Line should work the following path on Friday 8th June 2019 from Stewart’s Lane TRSMD. 73202 was sighted shunting Pullman stock today (Tues 4 June), although it will be moving to St Leonard’s TRSMD before Ramsgate rather than going with Clan Line on Friday.

Well add timings for other attending locomotives on their moves to Ramsgate EMUD, when we have them.

In addition to the listed attending locomotives, there will be fun for the whole family. On site events include:

  • 7¼ inch gauge locomotives
  • Steam locomotive exhibition (Clan Line presumably)
  • RH&DR Locomotive(s)
  • Rail vehicle lifting and re-railing demonstration
  • Ice creams and snacks, and railway stands and merch.
  • Other family related activities that aren’t railway related
