South Tynedale Railway is accessible to all of our visitors regardless of ability. There are large car parks at Slaggyford* and Alston and all station buildings are level access. There are ramps to platforms and to the ticket office at Alston station. The buffet car at Slaggyford Station is very narrow and so we have provided wheelchair suitable tables in the ticket office where you can enjoy your refreshments.
On every train journey we haul a carriage with access for wheelchair users and all areas of our sites are dog friendly so assistance dogs are welcome everywhere.
Our Engineering Workshop Viewing Gallery, where you can find out about the history of the Railway, is accessed either by stairs or an accessible lift.
We have accessible toilets and baby change facilities at both Slaggyford and Alston stations.
We make our events and experiences as accessible as we can. For some events you will be asked for information at the time of booking and this will enable us to meet your needs as best we can.
Bicycles can be carried but only if space is available, please ask the guard for more information.
*Please note that the access road to Slaggyford station is narrow and unsuitable for large coaches.
