June 15/16th Keith and Dufftown Railway 1940’s Weekend.

This will be the first 1940’s WEEKEND to be held at the Keith and Dufftown Railway and the event should be very entertaining and well worth a visit.

Dufftown Station will host the Military displays. Here you will see the The Desert Rats who fought in North Africa and see a U.S 101st ‘Air borne’ mortar team. Plus other Military vehicles and re-enactment groups.

Keith Station will depict the home front, and life in the 40’s.

The station will be prepared for air raids and will house an exhibition of items from a 1940’s home, an evacuee will be on hand to tell his own account of being sent by rail to Wales for the duration of the war, you will also meet the Home Guard together with a U.X.B.

On board the TRAIN you will be entertained by Tommy the spiv (He’s a dodgy fellow) and our local Copper, just to keep things in order.

To find out more, contact the Station. Friday – Sunday. 01340 821181

Or call 01340 820794 at any other time, particularly if you wish to take part.
