Amberley Museum reopened to the public on Wednesday 19 May.

We started the special events programme the following Sunday with our popular Industrial Trains Day. The Museum is planning its full season of special events so we look forward to seeing you.

The next railway event is Railway Gala Weekend on Sat/Sun 10/11 July.
We plan to provide all the usual activity of passenger and industrial trains and our Model Railway Exhibition will be back as well although perhaps not on such a grand scale but we're working on it. Up to date details can be found under the "Steam Dates & Special Events" tab above.

We will be pleased to see you but please note that all tickets MUST be booked in advance on the Museum's Web Page.

Website resurrected
Easter 2021

It seems somehow appropriate that work to resurrect the Amberley Narrow Gauge Railway's website should begin at Easter. We have been fortunate that a long-time associate of and former volunteer with the Museum's RailGroup, has offered to host the site.

Loss of our previous server, which was very old and using some equally old version of the Windows Server software resulted in our not being able to transfer the site onto another server using that software. That was in August 2019. Then, of course, another global situation reared its head and gave us all other things on which to focus our minds.

It'll take a little while to get all the news sections up to date but it'll be done as soon as humanly possible. Yes there is a real human behind all this lot although some members of the Museum might try to convince you otherwise.


The site is undergoing a modicum of maintenance and updating. Thank you for your patience.

“Peter”

Restoration Update

The auction for the Accucraft model of Peter, although not attracting many bids, did boost the Peter Fund by a considerable sum. The winning bid came from a member of the Museum's Bus Group!

The boiler was returned to the Museum on 17 September last year.
You can see the arrival and unloading in this You Tube video.

Although work is now progressing, Covid lockdowns permitting, we still have to pay for parts and work by outside contractors so donations to the Peter Fund are still being accepted. Please use this link to help us.

The chronology should be about right but if you spot any glaring errors or inconsistencies, then please let us know.

Thanks to Richard Cossey for the loan of the photographs from the Brockham Museum, the 1982-85 and 1988 sections.
