High speed trains will stop at the small Westenhanger train station during the weekend of military show the War and Peace Revival.
It is the second year that HS1 has run a service especially for the giant exhibition on the former Folkestone Racecourse.
The direct trains from London St Pancras will take about 45 minutes, operating for the weekend only.
Running from Wednesday to Sunday, July 16 to 20, the event is the world’s largest vintage and military festival.
For 25 years it had been based at the Hop Farm, moving to its new home last year.
War and Peace Revival organiser Rex Cadman said: “We’re really excited that Southeastern has once again given this support to War and Peace, highlighting just how important the show is to Kent.
“With the mainline rail station right next door, it is excellent to be working with our local rail operator.
“Visitors to the show last year were surprised at just how close the train station is, so we’re hoping that we can encourage more visitors to the War and Peace Revival to travel by train.”
Southeastern media relations manager Alison Nolan said: “The War and Peace Revival is a big event for the county, so we’re pleased to be working for a second time with the organisers to schedule extra train services.
“The timetable for these special stops will be released in the coming months.”
