 Special Event  - Sunday 12th June

Celebrate the Queens 90th Birthday at Beech Hurst Gardens


This event was cancelled on the day by the main event organizers. The railway ran a more traditional service, but over the extended period of time 12:00 to 17:00. We would like at apologize to anyone who was disappointed that we didn't run any double-headed trains.

Mid Sussex District Council Á Haywards Heath Town Council will be celebrating the Queen's 90th Birthday by organizing a family picnic and sports taster day at Beech Hurst Gardens. This will take place on Sunday 12th June from 12 noon to 4.00pm.

This will be a fun sports themed event with free activities for everyone. Come and celebrate this very special occasion and sample some of the great sports facilities and activities that Mid Sussex has to offer for people of all ages and abilities. Save the date in your diary and celebrate her Majesty’s 90th Birthday.

As our contribution to this special celebration we will be running a special service starting at 12 noon to match the start of this special event. Shortly before 2pm there may be a short pause in the service whilst we change the trains around.

After this we plan to double head (ie have two locomotives) each train, which may be longer than normal. 

Please note.

This type of service is particularly dependent on the weather. We therefore reserve the right to cancel this event or revert to a normal service if necessary.

The other events in the park are being organized by independent organizations that we have no control over and therefore we can accept no responsibility for any change they may make.

Our normal fares apply.


Children aged 1 and above ...... - 1.00
Adults.......................... - 1.00
Babies under 1 year old ........ - Free

Whilst every effort will be made by the Society to operate the above timetable, the Society cannot be held responsible for events beyond its control.
