You will be served a selection of sandwiches, scones and home made cakes with plenty of tea or coffee throughout the journey.

Numbers are limited to facilitate social distancing and enhanced cleaning regimes are in place.

Your steam train journey will begin from East Tanfield station (use post code – DH9 9UY)  and operate non-stop to Andrews House station.  Services will not operate to Sunniside station due to essential track maintenance.

Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your train departure time. This will allow enough time to park your car, have your tickets checked, and make your way to the train.
