The final stages of preparation for ‘Poplar’ to return to steam are well underway at The Kent & East Sussex Railway.
In fact, here’s a taster of the work-in-progress, taken today:
Tickets are on sale now for the engine’s inaugural public service on 2 June 2022, departing Tenterden Town Station for a return trip to Bodiam at 11:45am. ‘Poplar’ will be joined by sister Terrier ‘Knowle’ hauling services across the whole Jubilee weekend.
Book your tickets here.
To whet your appetite for the return of ‘Poplar’, here are the links to two excellent TV news reports broadcast by ITV Meridian when ‘Knowle’ returned to service last year. It’s well worth watching the videos on each page!
