South Tynedale Railway

The South Tynedale railway is England's highest narrow gauge railway. Running for five miles, the track follows a route from Alston in Cumbria to Slaggyford in Northumberland, via Gilderdale, Kirkhaugh and Lintley, on a picturesque route through the beautiful South Tyne Valley. Passengers enjoy a delightful heritage journey hauled by vintage steam, electric or diesel locomotives, some of which date back as far as the early 1900s.

The line runs along the southern section of what was once the Alston Line, a 13.5-mile railway that operated in Northumberland and Cumbria from the mid-1800s to 1976 when it was closed by British Rail. The South Tynedale Railway opened in its place in 1983, operated by The South Tynedale Preservation Society, and today its passengers are treated to a delightful journey taking in the glorious scenery of the North Pennines Area of Natural Beauty.
