New way to book tickets for events in 2018

The Weardale Railway are excited to announce that our visitors can now book tickets for events via Bishop Trains in advance.


New for 2018, passengers can now book ahead and purchase tickets via Bishop Trains on the telephone or through internet for special events. There will be a monthly Sunday Cream Tea Train (last Sunday of every month departing Stanhope @1345hrs returning at 1600hrs) starting on Mothers Day, 11 March. A special Class 31 weekend is also planned for 21/22 April 2018. Tickets can be pre-booked in advance.


Heritage Services tickets will continue to be available on the day on the train or from Stanhope Station.
