The popular Hastings old Town attraction runs trains between the seafront boating lake and Rock-a-Nore.

The team that run the attraction faced a snow flurry and cold conditions as the day started but the sun came out and visitors enjoyed taking rides.

The railway was running line tests over the weekend, prior to re-opening. Dan Radcliffe, who runs the attraction, said: “We have made a few changes, including some improvements to our Covid-safe running procedures. We are open seven days a week from 10am and hope to see you soon.”
