Earth Day 22nd April 2019

April 22

Earth Day is a great day to celebrate the launch of our newest steam loco, Green Dragon, and tell you all about some of the ways in which South Tynedale Railway is becoming more environmentally friendly. It’s going to be a great family day out with lots going on!

  • Green Dragon and Carlisle (one of our battery electric locos) will be in service
  • Easter trail round the Alston site with chocolatey prizes for correct answers
  • Easter egg competition – bring a decorated egg with you and you travel free (ages 1 – 15 only and must be accompanied by a fare paying adult)
  • Meet our gardening team at Slaggyford station and find out about the trees we’ve planted and our work with the North Pennines AONB’s Plugging the Gaps project
  • Meet some of the team from Cumbria Action for Sustainability
  • Craft sessions for children (must be pre-booked)

Looking forward to seeing you!
