The miniature railway in Alexandra Park in Hastings has been reopened.
The railway was originally opened in 1980, with a second loop built in the late 1980s.
Originally mixed gauge, the line was operated on an occasional basis by local model engineers, but their use stopped early last year, and the track and buildings fell into disrepair.
The operation was taken over late in 2015 by Dan Radcliffe, who runs Hastings Miniature Railway on the town’s seafront who has completely overhauled the line.
