This heritage railway was saved from total extinction by a band of enthusiastic volunteers in 1973. They raised enough money to re-open the line as a visitor attraction from Alresford to Ropley in 1977 and continued to raise funds to relay the track to join up with the South West Trains station at Alton by 1985.

Today we continue to exist as a not-for-profit organisation supporting the Mid Hants Railway Preservation Society so that we can provide a fun, nostalgic and educational day out for all ages. Over 400 dedicated volunteers assist a small team of paid staff to run the railway to preserve an important piece of 1940’s – 1970’s railway heritage for this generation and many more to follow.
