A visit to Hastings is not complete with out a ride on the train, ideal if you travel towards the East and walk back through the Old Town. Shame it is not steam though as it was once many years ago. Children will enjoy.

We came across the train and used it as a quick way to old town to save my legs. It was reasonably priced and entertaining as we rocked along. Would definitely use it again, much more fun than the bus!

The railway links Old town to the main attractions and the end stations are at the museum area and the go-cart track, so it is well-planned.

This attraction is a tiny steam engine which pulls carriages parallel to the Rock a Nore Road, past the net houses. However, the views are unspectacular, the railway line needs tidying up and it's a bit pricey for such a short journey. We think this...More

Sorry to hear you felt disappointed but would like to clarify that the view along the line has changed a lot over 70 years due to constant development, something that is out of our control. As for re-inverstment, all of the railways profits are put...More

People need to use Great British traditions like this. The staff were so friendly & you could tell they loved their jobs. I'd definitely a trip on this & they change the engines from steam to diesel locomotive to an intercity engine in small scale.

Took a walk from the main shopping centre to the old town was very glad this train took us half the way back again. My 2 year old granddaughter loved it. Worth a trip.
