The shop and ticket office are housed in the same building.  The ticket office is in keeping with the historic charm of the railway and is staffed by a team of people who are always happy to help.

We stock a wonderful array of gifts and keepsakes in the shop, with memorabilia dedicated to some of our most popular locomotives and a range of lovely things made by local producers such as local artist Nadine Sutterby and delicious Cumberland Mustard made right here in Alston.


So if you visit the railway don’t forget to leave time to have a wander around the shop – you never know what treasures you may come across!
