The Ramsgate Tunnel Narrow Gauge Railway This railway used the old railway tunnel and started in 1936 as the "World Scenic Railway". It did not run during the war when the railway tunnel and local caves were used for air-raid shelters and reopened after WW2. The photo was taken in July 1963 during a 6th-Form outing to Margate. This line was a narrow gauge electric railway (2ft?) with tram-style overhead pickup which ran through the old railway tunnel and then turned off to terminate in another part of the town. The railway closed in 1965.

This was originally the site of Ramsgate Harbour station (closed in 1929). It subsequently became an amusement arcade, I believe.
