Welcome to the Heatherslaw Light Railway (The most northerly steam railway in England).

Travel on our 15 inch gauge railway, pulled by our steam locomotives “Bunty” and “Lady Augusta” to our diesel engine “Binky”, between Heatherslaw Station and Etal Castle on a return journey of 4 miles. Our rolling stock offers a choice of fully enclosed or partly glazed coaches to keep you dry, even on the wettest days. There are two wheelchair compartments provided for disabled passengers and the Guard is always on hand to help with boarding.

There is free parking available at Heatherslaw Station and Etal Castle. You are welcome to board the train at Etal Station; return tickets can be purchased from the Guard, but this is a cash only service. Passengers wishing to pay with a credit or debit card may have to use the Ticket Office at Heatherslaw Station.

The Railway runs along the banks of the River Till giving you stunning views of the Northumberland countryside. You also have the opportunity to spot some of the local wildlife that live on the riverbank, including swans, herons, ducks and even the occasional otter.

Why not break your journey at Etal Station and visit Etal Castle, or walk the short distance up to Etal Village with its thatched cottages and pub, or visit the Lavender Tearoom for refreshments, before catching a later train back to Heatherslaw.

 On your return to Heatherslaw Station you are welcome to browse in the Ticket Office gift shop, or climb the stairs up to the Model Railway Room to view our “G” gauge layout. Press the red button to make the trains work.

A short walk across the footbridge takes you to Ford and Etal Visitor centre and the working watermill, Heatherslaw Mill. The Heatherslaw Tearoom is also available to provide refreshments. There are toilet facilities near the visitor centre at Heatherslaw Mill and also at Etal Castle.

There are special rates available for school parties and coach tours. Please make enquiries regarding parties, train times and booking information at the Ticket Office on 01890 820244. For any other enquiries please call 01890  820317.

The management and staff thank you for your support and look forward to welcoming you to the Heatherslaw Light Railway.

Passengers are invited to travel from Heatherslaw to Etal Station and back on our Christmas decorated train! The train will be hauled by one of our steam locomotives, “Bunty” or “Lady Augusta”. On returning to Heatherslaw Station, passengers will be shown up to the model railway room where they can enjoy refreshments. The model railway will be running to entertain the children while they are waiting to visit Santa. Families will be invited into the decorated grotto to see Santa who will provide each child with a quality Christmas gift. The Ticket Office gift shop will also be open for any last minute Christmas shopping!

Passengers have the choice of travelling on the 11am, 12:30 or 2pm train. Tickets must be pre-booked and paid for on the day of travel at the Ticket Office; we accept payment in cash, debit or credit cards. The train ride, refreshments and gift from Santa are all included in the price of £12 per person.
