plans for the line include heritage operation, but also trains for
training and testing purposes. At the moment, the line is single
but space for the second line is available throughout the route:
indeed, in many places the former second line is still visible under
the vegetation. We are planning to restore the second line, but
work the route as two parallel single lines for different purposes.
One line will carry training and testing trains, while the other
can be used at the same time for a heritage service.
main RDHR depot will be at North Woolwich, on the former South Goods
Yard (this is presently derelict). A five road shed will be required,
plus some external sidings and buildings for RailSchool and miscellaneous
museum will gain the 1979 booking office building, which will form
the new entrance to the museum and heritage railway.
our plans evolve, more information will appear here.
