Say it isn't so... Scenic Railway arson attack

I'm not in Margate at the moment and so caught the news late. Am extremely saddened and angry to report that the second arson attack on Margate's seafront has severely damaged the Scenic Railway in Dreamland.

More news from the Beeb.
Discussion on the Save Dreamland Campaign forum.
The running commentary from Thanets finest mouthpiece, ECR.


  1. Isn't it funny that wherever Mr Godden has wanted to develop something that is a listed building that all of a sudden it seems to burn down? Hmmmm?

  2. Of course, there is always the option of taking the site over and enforcing the reconstruction...

  3. dubious to say the least, and so short a time between the Tivoli Amusement fire and this. Have there been any problems in the plans to re-develop the dreamland park? Oh silly me!?

    It is such a shame that we live in a place where wild fires are so common. Must be due to the scorching heat and dry conditions of a snowy spring?? We are stupid.
