It is full steam ahead at East Kent Railway in Eythorne and Shepherdswell this Easter weekend, with family activities and a special ceremony planned.
Easter Sunday will see the rededication service and unveiling of new name plates for the John Fowler diesel engine (pictured) which once transported coal from Snowdown Colliery.
Volunteer Colin Varrall said: "The locomotive will be involved in performing tricks with eggs being held between its buffers without breaking.
"Brake van rides will be made along the Wigmore Lane extension of the East Kent Railway line carrying passengers," he added.
Over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend there will be other activities organised by East Kent Railway Trust, including seed planting, log pulling in the woods and woodland walks to see bluebells in full bloom.
The railway was built to transport coal, and other goods, across east Kent.
This part of our mining heritage is being remembered thanks to the trust who preserves the line.
Ticket prices this weekend are: adult £6, child £3 and £15 for a family with two adults and two children.
