WEARDALE RAILWAY: TRAINS ARE BACK ON TRACK Thursday, 10 December 2020

Weardale Railway Ltd, a new company we have established to secure the future of the railway, has been granted a Transport and Works Act Order, enabling the running of trains to begin on Weardale Railway again. A busy schedule over the next few months includes much-needed improvements to enable the line to continue running safely, including repair of bridges and the track bed.

In order to complete the essential repairs by Easter 2021, trains and maintenance vehicles will be travelling on the line over winter. Not all of these vehicles make noise, and they pose a severe danger to anyone crossing the tracks or walking along them.

The Weardale Railway team will be repairing fences at access points and improving on-site communication to highlight the dangers of trespassing on the tracks.
