A new way to purchase your train ticket

We are pleased to announce that Bishop Trains, based out of the main national Rail Station in Bishop Auckland is to become ticket agent for WR Heritage Services from July.


Under the agreement Bishop Trains BA-Rail.co.uk will be acting as the heritage railway's point of contact at Bishop Auckland on train service running days (Sundays excepted), tickets will be available from our Travel Centre at the main railway station on the day of travel or in advance, and the Bishop Trains team will promote the services now offered by WRHSL from the town.


The Railway Youth Team based at the main station, supported by Bishop Trains staff, have already adopted the WR station at Bishop Auckland West and regularly visit the station to keep it clean and tidy.


Tickets are available now with a return ticket from Bishop Auckland to Stanhope costing £16 (concessions £14 / child 5-15 £9).


New timetables are now available at Bishop Auckland main station.
