Thanet District Council has confirmed that Dreamland's scenic railway - the attraction's centrepiece - will not be finished in time for the launch of the revamped theme park in Margate on the 19th June.

Work to the railway's timber frame structure is almost complete, but there is continuing restoration to the trains.

All of the other rides and attractions due for phase one will be open as planned, with existing ticket holders having been informed and offered a free return visit at a later date.
