Diesel haulage from Eridge
Diesel haulage from Eridge
A group had chartered this train on the Spa Valley Railway for the day, but invited members of the public to join them for a reasonable fee for a day rover ticket. It was "topped and tailed" by two diesel locomotives. Here, 33063 is at the rear of the train as it leaves Eridge; 37153 was hauling.

For the other end of the overgrown siding, see TQ5334 : Overgrown siding outside Eridge station.
Spa Valley Railway

The Spa Valley Railway is a heritage railway opened in 1996. Running for 4 miles from Tunbridge Wells to Eridge, with Groombridge and High Rocks stations mid point. The line originally connected to the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway lines until it finally closed in May 1985 but in March 2011 the line was reconnected to Eridge and the main line to London.

Some of the original station buildings have now been converted to other uses, Tunbridge Wells a restaurant and Groombridge to offices.
