The South Tynedale Railway

Enjoy a scenic ride through the beautiful South Tyne valley from Alston station. Travel to Kirkhaugh, Lintley Halt, Slaggyford and back on trains hauled by vintage steam, battery electric or diesel locomotives through lovely Pennine scenery. Catch sight of deer, look out for soaring birds of prey, you may even glimpse a red squirrel. Your journey to Alston, which lies at the crossroads of five routes, takes you through the stunning landscape of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
