Shepherdswell railway station was the southern terminus of the East Kent Light Railway. It opened on 16 October 1916 and closed to passenger traffic on 30 October 1948. The normal practice was to run coaches into the station under gravity. Shepherdswell was the location of the engine shed and works, and a large number of sidings. It served the village of Shepherdswell or Sibertswold. The station reopened as part of the East Kent Railway in 1993.
The East Kent Railway (EKR) is a short heritage railway in Kent, England. It is located at Shepherdswell station on the London to Dover Priory direct mainline. The line was constructed from 1911 to 1917 to serve a local colliery at Tilmanstone. The line is operated by heritage diesel locomotives designed for the Southern Region. It is also home to a growing collection of heritage diesel and electric multiple units, many of which were used in service in Kent.
