The Hayling Seaside Railway has been placed on the market for £250,000. The asking price for this mile-long 2-foot gauge railway includes two locomotives and all rolling stock, tools and machinery.
The price also includes the new showpiece depot, highly visible from the main road at Eastoke corner and instantly recognised as a railway building and a perfect advertisement for the railway.
The railway has two locomotives, Jack, and Alan Keefe – built steam outline diesel-hydraulic, and Alan B a totally rebuilt motor rail diesel-hydraulic. There are also two other privately owned locomotives on loan.
The line has five bogie coaches which enable up to 90 people, or two trains of 45, to enjoy the trip along the seafront with panoramic views of the Solent and the Isle of Wight.
Two trains can run, with a passing point in the middle at Mengham Road Station, which has been passed by the O.R.R.
The line carries around 40,000 people a year and has a volunteer society of around 60 members.
The railway runs every weekend and Wednesdays throughout the year and daily during school holidays.
It has become a very popular railway in this thriving holiday and tourist resort.
