The steelworks for the station roof are being put in place next week. This means that there will be a beautiful roof over Alston Station, protecting our visitors from the Alston Moor climate in the colder months! It also means that platform 2 can be completed. These are the penultimate items for us to deliver for the HLF project, which means that we are almost there. Thank you so much for your continued support over the last 3 years, it does mean a lot. If you could just bear with us for a little longer we promise that it will be worth it in the end.
Because of these exciting happenings, unfortunately, we won’t be able to run services next Tuesday and Thursday. The site will be completely CLOSED from Monday evening until Saturday morning (this includes our Discovery Centre, Heritage Engineering Workshop and Cafe). For our local friends, this will mean that there will be noise both day and night whilst the steelworks are put into place. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience and disturbance that this may cause.
Thank you again for your support, we do hope that you will pay us a visit to see how the works are progressing.

Whilst we endeavour to keep this information accurate it can be subject to change at short notice depending on volunteer crew availability and any mechanical issues that arise with the locomotives.
