Wensleydale Railway

The Wensleydale Railway is an authentic Heritage Railway running from Leeming bar in the Vale of Mowbray to Redmire in the spectacular Yorkshire Dales..

 

Wensleydale Railway is working very hard behind the scenes to return the line to working as soon as we are able. However, with no traffic for months we face issues of vegetation and line repair, which we are already now working on, following the slight relaxing of the Government guidance. We have also been using the down time to complete some much needed engineering work: Leeming Bar Station House; Harmby track re-lay and the Wensley crossing renewal. We will start to run services when these works have been fully completed. 

Please note, that the railway is still operational for works trains and MOD services to Redmire, and as such is still a live railway. Trespass on the track is not only dangerous but also a criminal offence. Please keep off the railway, for your own safety.
