The Woolwich coach
Brian Janes
Built for the North London Railway at Wolverton in 1911, this four-wheeled brake was sold to Woolwich Arsenal in about 1940 and was the first carriage on the preservation-era K&ESR in 1964.  It has now been restored to passenger service with the aid of a grant from the Millenium Commission, painted in LMS livery and numbered 7965.

The railway experience
Philip Shaw
One of the visitor attractions of the K&ESR is the introduction to driving course, in which participants are taught the skills required to drive a steam engine.  The programme is described, and illustrated with photographs by Brian Stephenson

New siding to Quarry Farm
Mark Yonge
The Rother Valley Railway Ltd has agreed to allow the K&ESR to relay track on some 200 metres of formation that it owns beyond the limit of K&ESR ownership at Bodiam.  The Rother Valley Railway is also planning to reinstate a section of embankment beyond this point.  This forms part of the long-term objective of rebuilding the link between Bodiam and Robertsbridge

Colonel Stephens in West Somerset
Tom Burnham
In 1917, H.F. Stephens became a director of the west Somerset Mineral Railway, although the line had seen no traffic since 1911 and the track had been lifted

Rails at Rye Harbour
Kevin Payne
The complex history of industry at Rye Harbour, and its associated railways, both standard gauge (connected to the South Eastern Railways goods-only branch) and narrow (mostly 2-foot) gauge

A question of attribution
Brian Janes
A carriage body stored by the London Transport Museum at Acton is shown to be that of Weston, Clevedon & Portishead Light Railway carriage No. 7, probably Metropolitan Railway No. 337
