Welcome to the Kent and East Sussex Railway's Virtual Mutual Improvement Classroom

On these pages you will find handouts, videos and other material relating to the operation of the K&ESR, its locomotives and other equipment along with general information, hints and tips. Most of the material has been created specially for the K&ESR by its staff and volunteers and supplemented by historical information as required.

This website is designed to act as a reference library of information and material for anyone involved with heritage railway operations. It is hoped that volunteers and staff at the K&ESR and other heritage railways will contribute material and information to help this website develop. Although it is recognised that each railway and organisation will do things differently it is hoped that this repository of information will allow anybody interested to develop their knowledge and understanding.

The utmost care will be taken to ensure that material on this website is accurate and kept up to date. However the Authors and the K&ESR take no responsibility for the accuracy of the information included. It is supplied freely for reference and self improvement.

If you have any ideas for new material, or have any questions or spot any mistakes, please feel free to contact  Andy Hardy, K&ESR Operating Assistant via the Contact Us page.

The Operating Department would like to thank everyone who has helped in the creation and checking of all the material and pages contained on this website.
