2022 Operating Season

We plan to resume the diesel unit heritage service on Saturday 28th May. Due to continuing track maintenance work on the section between Wolsingham and Bishop Auckland, we will initially be running between Stanhope and Wolsingham on Saturdays only. Please look out for further announcements here and on our Facebook and Twitter feeds.


Heritage DMU services are operated by Weardale Railway Heritage Services Ltd (WRHSL) on behalf of Weardale Railway Trust and in conjunction with Weardale Railways Limited.

Whilst every effort is made to maintain the service shown, WRHSL reserve the right to cancel, alter or suspend any train without notice and accepts no liability for any loss, inconvenience or delay thereby caused.
