The Watercress Line

Alresford Station, Alresford

SO23 9JG

Transport yourself back in time to the 1940s, against the backdrop of a Second World War railway, to experience the 'Blitz Spirit'. The event timetable will include all our standard departures plus additional services to be confirmed closer to the event.

Enjoy unlimited train travel and mingle with civilian and military re-enactors, hop off at each station to explore period displays, music, dancing, vintage vehicles and stalls selling retro wares. Each station provides you with a different experience of life in wartime Britain. Help run the recreated RAF Plotting Room, dance alongside GIs, learn about the ‘Home Front’ and wartime railway manufacturing or have your hair styled for the 40s. There is something different at every station. War on the Line is as much about reliving this period as enjoying the rush of the steam engine. Whether the day out means the chance to dress up in your own period costume, or just to come along to soak up the atmosphere, War on the Line is a unique way to enjoy a day on the railway.

Adult £18 | Child (aged 2-16 yrs) £10 | Child under 2 yrs FREE | Family (2 Adults & 2 Children) £46
