While this was the first roller coaster constructed at Dreamland, it is not the first to operate in Margate. The Switchback Railway operated from 1888 to 1897.
On 21 August 1949, a third of the Scenic Railway was destroyed in a fire in the early morning.
The Scenic Railway has been painted white, blue and brown in the past. When it was rebuilt in 2015, it was left unpainted.
3 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 5 rows, for a total of 30 riders per train. The train is still operated by a brakeman, however when the trains were rebuilt a magnetic braking system was added which regulates their speed.
