2022 Operating Season

Our diesel unit heritage service resumed on the 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. Please look out for further announcements here and on our Facebook and Twitter feeds.


From Saturday 23rd July, all trains will stop at Kingfisher Halt. This is no longer a request stop with every train now timetabled to call there.

Service days until 31st October are shown below. In addition to running every Saturday until 29th October, we are running mid-week on Wednesdays from 27th July until 21st September.
