Visiting Heatherslaw Light Railway
I haven't been to Heatherslaw Light Railway yet...
Heatherslaw Light Railway (The most northerly steam railway in England).
Travel on our 15 inch gauge railway from Heatherslaw Station to Etal Castle on a return journey of 6.4km. On quiet days or bad weather we may have our new diesel in service which we will be launching and naming at the beginning of the 2015 season. The coaches are all fitted with roofs to keep the rain off and offer a variety of fully enclosed, partly glazed, and fully open seating to suit all weather conditions. There are two wheelchair compartments provided for disabled passengers.
There is free parking available at Heatherslaw Station and Etal Castle. You are welcome to board the train at Etal Station; return tickets can be purchased from the Guard, but this is a cash only service. Passengers wishing to pay with a credit or debit card will have to use the Ticket Office at Heatherslaw Station.
The Railway runs along the banks of the River Till giving you stunning views of the Northumberland countryside. You also have the opportunity to spot some of the local wildlife that live on the riverbank, including swans, herons, ducks and even the occasional otter.
Why not break your journey at Etal Station and visit Etal Castle, or walk the short distance up to Etal Village with its thatched cottages and pub, or visit the Lavender Tearoom for refreshments, before catching a later train back to Heatherslaw.
