About South Tynedale Railway

South Tynedale Railway gives you and the kids the chance to travel on trains hauled by wonderfully preserved vintage steam and diesel locomotives from Britain and overseas, through stunning countryside. A thoroughly charming way to travel with loads of time for family natters and bonding.

Trains run between Alston Station (875 feet above sea level), and Kirkhaugh, following part of the old Haltwhistle to Alston branch line along the Tyne Valley in North East Cumbria. The line has recently been extended from Gilderdale (which is now closed) to Kirkhaugh, a distance of some 2 miles.

Enjoy scenic views of the lovely South Tyne Valley, and beautiful Pennine scenery, and look out for wildlife such as soaring birds, deer, and even red squirrels! Whichever route you travel as you sit back and relax in a vintage carriage, you can be sure that there will be plenty for everyone to see and do!
