QUOTE (John Webb @ 19 Feb 2009, 17:43) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>OK, just curious. I lived on the North Kent line near Woolwich until 1977 and occasionally went round to Margate. Did pay a visit once to Ramsgate in the mid-1960s but must admit I was seeking out the traces of the old harbour branch and paid little attention to the mainline station.


The well overgrown tunnel entrance can just be seen on the left as you approach Dumpton Part Station. The exit on Ramsgate seafront can just about be made out too. AFAIK the actual tunnel is still intact.

The station itself ended it's days as an amusement arcade/funfair till it burnt down & the engine shed ended up as a nightclub "Nero's" (where I spent far too much time in my miss-spent youth).

I do have (although probably stored at BRITHO's) a copy of the book about the Tunnel Railway which used most of the tunnel, but terminated at a station in Hereson Road (now a filling station/car sales site). If you would like to borrow the book send me a PM with your address.

Hope this may be of some interest.
