The next railway event is Autumn Industrial Trains Day on Sunday 17 October 2021
A repeat performance of our very successful Spring event in May which opened up the Museum's programme of special events following the relaxation of The Rules. It is expected that by this time repainting of one of our Motor Rail locos, No.27, will be complete. You will be pleased to hear, also, that repairs to the locally owned Thakeham Tiles Hudson Hunslet loco have also been finished and this should be running as well. Of course, special care has to be taken with this one as it only has a coupling on one end.

What will be on the passenger trains? Find out here.

Steam Trains
There are only two more steam train days left this season when Polar Bear will be providing the power for the Groudle Glen train. Check the Events tab above for details.

We shall be pleased to see you but please note that all tickets MUST be booked in advance on the Museum's Web Page. Tickets for all our opening days up to the end of October are now available.

Keep a look out on the Museum's website for our Christmas at Amberley events on the first three weekends of December.

Website resurrected
Easter 2021

It seems somehow appropriate that work to resurrect the Amberley Narrow Gauge Railway's website should begin at Easter. We have been fortunate that a long-time associate of and former volunteer with the Museum's RailGroup, has offered to host the site.

Loss of our previous server, which was very old and using some equally old version of the Windows Server software resulted in our not being able to transfer the site onto another server using that software. That was in August 2019. Then, of course, another global situation reared its head and gave us all other things on which to focus our minds.


The site still is undergoing a modicum of maintenance and updating. Thank you for your patience.

Restoration Update

The auction for the Accucraft model of Peter, although not attracting many bids, did boost the Peter Fund by a considerable sum. The winning bid came from a member of the Museum's Bus Group!

The boiler was returned to the Museum on 17 September last year.
You can see the arrival and unloading in this You Tube video.

Although work is now progressing, Covid lockdowns permitting, we still have to pay for parts and work by outside contractors so donations to the Peter Fund are still being accepted. Please use this link to help us.

The chronology should be about right but if you spot any glaring errors or inconsistencies, then please let us know.

Thanks to Richard Cossey for the loan of the photographs from the Brockham Museum, the 1982-85 and 1988 sections.
