I called here in 2007 en route from Scotland and found it well worth the visit. So I revisited this year to find it little developed but it is making progress. High in the Pennines, it is worth making the detour from the Lake District or the Yorkshire and Durham dales. This narrow gauge railway is laid on the trackbed of a former standard gauge branch from Alston to Kirkhaugh, with plans to extend to Slaggyford. Work is progressing on the extension. The scenery is attractive Pennine moorland.
