Welcome to the World's Oldest Railway

Tanfield RailwayTWHF's latest alliance member is the world famous Tanfield Railway. Tanfield is a great day out for all the family - an unforgettable journey on a vintage steam train with unique Victorian carriages and lovingly restored locomotives.

Their Polar Express trains up to Christmas are as popular as ever and are completely sold out. However those that missed out can join Tanfield on December 26th and 27th for their Mince Pie Specials and every Sunday after that.

Tanfield Railway depends entirely upon passionate volunteers. Why not become part of the Tanfield Railway family? Whatever your age, background or skills Tanfield can find a satisfying and rewarding volunteering opportunity for you!
