A weekend of World War II nostalgia is taking place along a railway line on the Kent and East Sussex border.

The annual 1940s weekend at the Kent and East Sussex Railway, in Tenterden, includes a flypast from a Spitfire and a Douglas C-47 Dakota.

Visitors will be able to step inside an air raid shelter and view wartime vehicles.

The ten and a half mile light railway runs from Tenterden, in Kent, to Bodiam, in East Sussex.

General manager Graham Baldwin said: "Our 1940s weekend is an established part of our events calendar and one of the most popular weekend events we hold at the railway.

"The event appeals to all ages and grows in popularity each year."
