From Our Editors

Originally constructed to serve the Kent collieries, the East Kent Railway is today a heritage attraction for the masses. Visitors can ride the restored trains between the villages of Shepherdswell and Eythorne -- a distance of two miles. The visitor centre is home to Colonel's Cafe where guests can refuel with a selection of food and drink, and special summer events see the outdoor barbecue fired up. A miniature railway ride is a big pull for the kids and the highly detailed Walmer Model Railway is a hit with enthusiasts both young and old. Entry to The Knees Woodland is gained from the main car park, and customers can enjoy walks through the 350-year-old woodland which was once the site of World War II trenches and a water tank that was used to refill the steam engines.

Its a short trip and not really much to do at the other station. Wouldn't plan a whole day out around the train.
