Waterworks railway’s history kept alive through the work of volunteers

The Hampton and Kempton Waterworks Railway, known as south west London’s best kept secret, is kept running through the work of volunteers.

They run one of the few narrow-gauge railways operating within the M25 and it is open every Sunday.

The railway and the educational centre is operated solely by a group of volunteers, who operate the trains and organise events for the benefit of families and the local community.

The railway is embarking on a £1.8 million restoration campaign to reinstate the early 20th century industrial railway.

They hope the project will provide a unique railway experience that will attract a mix of enthusiasts, local families and educationalists, who will help to keep the rich industrial history alive.
