This weekend provided the eagerly awaited Weardale Railway 31 gala weekend timetable being released. There was an added bonus of trains returning to Bishop Auckland West for the first time in over 5 years.
Following the completion of track repairs to the west of Bishop Auckland, Weardale Railway are pleased to announce that trains will once again operate to/from their station at Bishop Auckland West.
Arrival and departure of trains at Bishop Auckland will coincide with Northern on the national network.
Trains operating as part of some special events will operate from the station and later this year it is expected that the Heritage service will also be extended to the town.
