It was with great pleasure that Hampton & Kempton Waterworks Railway (HKWR) welcomed The Worshipful Mayor of the London Borough of Hounslow, Councillor Samia Chaudhary and her Consort, to our Ghost Night Train on Friday 26th October.
The Mayor thoroughly enjoyed the spooky train ride with a ghostly zombie pirate theme, and was considerably impressed by the voluntary effort made to produce and run the event.
HKWR will be donating part of the Ghost Night proceeds to her named charity, the West Middlesex Hospital CW+ Sun & Stars Appeal.
Volunteers at HKWR are now busily preparing for the next exciting children’s event – the Santa Special on 15th/16th December 2018.

About Hampton & Kempton Waterworks Railway (H&KWR)
Constructed, managed and operated entirely by voluntary effort, H&KWR has been engaged in a project since 2003 to re-create a narrow gauge historic railway. Adjacent to Kempton Steam Museum, the industrial railway carried coal 1915-1945 from the Thames at Hampton to the Kempton & Hampton water pumping stations.
2012 first phase of the project was completed (the Hanworth `loop’). H&KWR successfully operate the only passenger steam railway within the M25.
Second phase of restoration will substantially extend operations, providing a local recreational amenity and educational centre for industrial history.
