Rail history to be celebrated this summer

CELEBRATIONS are set to be held to mark 150 years of trains in Bognor Regis.

Events will take place on June 1 at the railway stations in the town and Barnham to recognise the milestone.

The attractions will include railway heritage stalls, model railway displays, live music and entertainment by Rox and local history displays and talks.

Free vintage bus rides will be offered to Bognor’s pier and to Barnham’s restored signal box and the village’s community hall.

Miniature steam train rides will also be available.

Signal box tours and a mosaic workshop should keep visitors of all ages amused as well.

The events are being held by Sussex Community Rail Partnership and Southern Railway. More details from www.sussexcrp.org
