Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch light railway open today after accident

By KentOnline reporter

The operators of the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch light railway say it will operate today as normal despite Saturday's derailment.

Passengers were injured when a train derailed after hitting a tractor.

Fire crews dealt with the locomotive's boiler which was "at risk of exploding" and eye-witnesses say  the train driver leapt from the carriage and took others to safety after it collapsed onto its side.
