  • It has been great to keep revisiting this 'little' railway and see it grow from an engine shed on an industrial estate into a working track with signal boxes and real steam train rides (@ May 2017). As they are still building the track of course each journey is quite short but your ticket entitles you to as many trips as you like. Enthusiasts of all ages can easily spend a few hours here; doubtless when the line is fully built it will be worthy of a full day-trip!
  • Fantastic days out for anyone who likes a train.
  • My biker friends and I visited the "Wheels Weekend" this year..........we took our classic British motorcycles, and we had a fantastic day at this amazing venue. The volunteers were friendly, informative and very willing to answer questions in relation to the ongoing developments of the railway. I would recommend this attraction to anyone visiting Northumberland.......it's of great interest to all age groups.......
  • A lovely railway project ran by volunteers. Friendly people who shared how the railway was developing.
  • The passion the volunteers have here rubs off on the visitor. The track is getting closer to Alnmouth...
