Attraction in Alresford
Experience history in motion as you travel by steam or heritage diesel train. We run trains between the beautiful Georgian town of Alresford and Alton where a link is made to the national rail network.
The route takes you along 10 miles of steeply graded track through beautiful Hampshire scenery, passing two intermediate stations - Ropley, which is the railway's engineering base; and Medstead and Four Marks, the highest station in southern England. The steep hills either side of Medstead gave rise to this section of line being known as 'Over the Alps'; and today means that we must use large, powerful steam engines.
There are many special events throughout the year, such as War on the Line, a Day Out with Thomas and Santa Specials. Kids of all ages will enjoy a family day out on Hampshire's Heritage Railway.
