Development News

The re-development of the site is under way. The new Brewster Centre now has a roof and looks quite impressive.  We have re-opened part of the original museum to give visitors an insight into the history of the CVR. The Miniature Railway has re-opened a section of track, this will eventually be a much longer line. Work on the new roadway and entrance is also taking place

Diesel Gala 24th March

We started our 2018 season with a Diesel Gala, the first for a while. Services during the day were provided by our two class 03s - D2041 and D2184, 121 Bubble Car and the 141 Pacer - the first time this has worked for some time.

Building Update

Over the last few months work has started on our Heritage Lottery Funded project. The new entrance road layout has been started, it couldn't progress until UK Power had removed the overhead power lines - these are now resited underground. Once the road is done construction can start on the new reception building. The area for the Cubitt Skills Centre is being cleared and the  Miniature Railway has been dismantled to make way for all the work but  will be re-instated in a new layout.   Work on the new museum building, the Brewster Centre , has also started.
