Special Interest

The North of England’s double gold award winning narrow gauge railway winding from Alston into the South Tyne Valley in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The trains are hauled by steam, diesel or battery electric locos and all have a fascinating history. Both of the restored stations at Alston and Slaggyford house a café, ticket office and gift shop. At Alston you can explore the Discovery Centre and visit the viewing gallery above the engineering workshop. Most areas of the site are accessible and there are large car parks at both Alston and Slaggyford.
