Saturday 18th & Sunday 19th June 2022

Join us for this unique opportunity to see Poplar at the DLR's Poplar Depot

From 10am to 4pm on each of these two days, 1872 steam locomotive ‘Poplar’ will be on display for public viewing at Poplar Depot on the Docklands Light Railway, in the shadow of Canary Wharf.
At the invitation of Transport for London, KAD (operators of the DLR), the Terrier Trust and the Kent & East Sussex Railway (owners of the locomotive), come and find out more about the history of these famous class of locomotives which started commuting in London and were so useful that 10 have survived to the current day.
Visit the footplate and handle the controls of this Victorian time-machine.
Groups for each 30 minute timeslot will be strictly limited to 20 people to ensure a full experience for visitors.
Proceeds from the booking fee go towards preserving these wonderful machines for the future.

Tickets are limited and offered on a first come, first served basis. Please ensure that you purchase sufficient tickets for your needs, as additions to confirmed bookings will not be possible
