2019 Heritage Service concludes

We’d just like to say a massive thanks to all our passengers, visitors, supporters and our committed volunteers, whatever your role for another fantastic heritage service season....

Our heritage service has not been without its challenges, with a couple of traction failures, unavailability of operational volunteers and hire in of Class 31 and coaching stock we have made it to the end of 2019. 

There has been much more happening this year with diesel and railcar galas, continuation of afternoon and cream teas as well as several charters running to add to variety. Regular return trips between Stanhope and Bishop Auckland have been the result of developing our offer to visitors since 2014. 

We can’t continue to expand without our die hard volunteers without whom we couldn’t offer the things we have. If you would like to get involved please get in touch at volunteering@weardale-railway.org.uk
