The STR Bear is back!

Join us for Teddy Bear Day on  Wednesday May 29th

There will be a Teddy Trail at Alston station with 9 teddies to find and Bear will be travelling on all of our services with a free teddy for every child under 17!

Why not bring your own teddy for a trip on the train and maybe have a teddy bears’ picnic, or take something away from Kim and Dug at the Crossing Café or Adie and Kate at the Little Buffet car at Slaggyford.

Ticket price is the same as our usual Rover ticket price!

Nature on Track

We’re delighted to be joining in with the North Pennines NatureFest24.

Our volunteers will be helping with a spot of bug hunting and badge making and there will be a bird trail to follow around our site too.  All the activities are free and there’s no need to book in advance, however, if you fancy a train ride ( and why wouldn’t you!), it’s best to book your train tickets in advance.

Ride and Stride again…

Full details of our up and coming guided walks will be bookable on our events pages soon.
