In May 2011 Mr. Alan Thompson gave us an excellent talk and slide show on The Tanfield Railway; some of our members have been inspired by meeting Alan and have either visited the railway already or intend to go soon.
At Tanfield, you'll find Santa Specials, Edwardian Days, Teddy Bear Days and a Miners' Heritage Weekend.
Whether you'd like to volunteer, go walking in the area or ride on a steam-hauled train, here's the website to inform you.
