Scheduled Activities for 2022

This page outlines the scheduled activities on the Downs Light Railway for youth members and adult volunteers. If you are not a youth member or adult volunteer this page is not for you. We rarely open the Downs Light Railway to the public for non-educational reasons.
Each session has a link for details and registration. Please click on the link for more details and to register for a place. New youth members to the Downs Light Railway will need an induction before they can participate in all the activities. Please contact us to arrange this during one of our planned sessions.
