The railway is based at Pulborough Garden Centre, West Sussex and is noted for its fine fleet of steam locos. These include Exmoor Steam Railway (ESR) 0-4-2Ts Pulborough and Peggy. It also has 0-4-2 diesel-hydraulic Arun (ESR 347 of 7.2016), powered by a 24hp Kubota engine. It is fitted with air-brake controls and a track sander to help climb the railway’s steep gradient in wet weather. It is seen on March 2.
