Sittingbourne & Kemsley Railway train from Sittingbourne Viaduct to Kemsley Down, making its way along the twisting 2985 yards long Milton Regis Viaduct on 20th July 2014. This dates from 1914 and consists of 118 spans and 6 bridges. By 2008, closure of the line became a distinct possibility and no trains ran at all in 2009. For a few weeks in October 2010, trains were reinstated between Kemsley Down and the north end of Milton Regis Viaduct but did not cross the viaduct which needed substantial repairs. Between May and September 2011, trains again ran on this truncated section but once the repairs had been carried out, the whole line from Kemsley Down to Sittingbourne Viaduct reopened on 27th May 2012.
