A heritage railway runĀ  by a volunteer team and generally open at the weekends between mid April and the end of November.
Trains run on some days from Kirkby Stephen East, one of the many stations closed in the 1960s by Dr. Beeching.
There are several static carriages and engines on show in the station area and are free to see – donations appreciated.
A museum plus display boards show the history of the line and the work the volunteers are carrying out. There is a shop with a range of model trains for sale, along with other heritage items.

The Stainmore Railway is less than a mile from the centre of Kirkby Stephen and there is some parking available. For those staying at the Pennine View Park campsite, the railway is just across the road.
