An eagle-eyed reader spotted an unusual but very welcome visitor to Rye at the weekend and took the video footage below.
The special chartered train stopped at Rye at 11:26am on the way to Ashford and returned at 5:12pm heading for Tunbridge Wells. It was much longer than our normal trains, with at least six carriages. The passengers were clearly enjoying themselves and waved to passers by.
Can anyone shed more light on the train? What was the occasion? What kind of train was it? Answers to Rye News please!
