News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Hi civeh, interesting photo of the fair on Dover sea front (1920) and it does indicate there was passing loops on the sea front railway.

I think the Fair could be Forrests Amusments from Dartford. I know they have been coming to Dover for a very long time, at least 60 years that I know of. They used to open mainly in Pencester Gardens, Dover.

I love that pic. Thanks for posting it. It would be a bit difficult to work a train on the seaward line of the branch. I am going to guess that the Engine is a Burrell. Do we know the fair?
