Kent & East Sussex Railway, Bodiam railway station, Locomotive No 14 'Charwelton', a Manning-Wardle 0-6-0ST modified class O engine.
Bodiam is a heritage railway station on the Kent and East Sussex Railway in Bodiam, East Sussex.
Situated half a mile from the Bodiam village itself and its fourteenth century castle, the station opened in 1900 in a rather remote and rural location. It was surrounded by hop fields, mainly owned by Guinness, and helped to serve the industry in the area, bringing hop-pickers to and from the fields and transporting hops to the breweries.
In 1910, a siding was added which effectively acted as a loop allowing freight trains to pass passenger trains. The station was known as "Bodiam for Staplecross".
