Accessible carriage, hauled on every journey


South Tynedale Railway is generally accessible to all of our visitors regardless of ability. There are large car parks at Slaggyford and Alston and all station buildings, with the exception of the signal boxes, are level access. There are ramps to platforms and to the ticket office and shop at Alston station.The buffet car at Slaggyford Station is very narrow but we have wheelchair suitable tables in the ticket office where you can enjoy your refreshments.

Please note that the access road to Slaggyford station is narrow and unsuitable for large coaches.

A carriage with access for wheelchair users is hauled on every train journey and as all areas of our site are dog friendly so assistance dogs are welcome everywhere.

Our Engineering Workshop Viewing Gallery is accessed either by stairs or an accessible lift.

We have accessible toilets and baby change facilities at both Slaggyford and  Alston stations.
