Ian Allan
(Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway)

Did this excursion run? Information taken from an advertising leaflet.

Traction Used ?????

Route :

Traction Route
????? London Charing Cross - ??? - New Romney
????? New Romney - (?reverse of outward route?) - London Charing Cross

Notes :
(1) Advertising leaflet states that a special train would run from London 'if traffic conditions permit' - otherwise it is assumed service train(s) were used as it is stated that accommodation would be 'strictly limited'. Fares were also available from Brighton and Portsmouth - it is assumed these are using service trains. Use of 'special trains' on the RH&DR is mentioned in the advert; 'programme including a complete tour of the line, inspection of the engine sheds and model railway display etc'.
