  • Great day out, even though it was closed, the volunteers still let us onto the platform and showed us around.
  • This indeed is a five star Heritage Railway. Staffed by hugely dedicated volunteers. Active vintage restorations ongoing of high quality. Friendly welcome, informative. Special events throughout the year. Go there!
  • Brilliant. Even got to go in the engine!
  • The Directors and Volunteers of the SRC at Kirkby Stephen East station are working hard to restore the railway to operations as it was when it closed in the 1960s; the aim is for the restoration to be as authentic as possible. Visitors are welcome each weekend betwenn 10.00am and 4.00pm.
  • Great place for railway enthusiasts or simply a little time for a ride on the train
