The Heatherslaw Light Railway is the most northerly steam railway in England.
Travel on the 15” gauge railway pulled by the steam locomotives “Bunty” and “Lady Augusta” or the diesel engine “Binky” between Heatherslaw and Etal Castle, a return journey of 6.4km.
The first train from Heatherslaw is at 10.30am and trains are running approximately 1 1/4 hourly from Heatherslaw. All tickets are for return journeys and can be purchased at the Ticket Office at Heatherslaw or at Etal Station from the guard. There is a choice of fully enclosed or partly glazed coaches to keep you dry, even on the wettest of days.
The railway runs along the banks of the River Till giving you wonderful views of the Northumberland countryside and Cheviot Hills. Swans, heron, ducks and the occasional otter are some of the many residents you may spot along the way.
