Stainmore Railway Company at Kirkby Stephen East

Due to the fact that we have an extensive building program for our water tower, engine shed and track-work in 2016 /17 we are not planning any public Murder Mystery events for this year.

We can offer privately chartered Murder Mystery Events for a minimum of 40 participants paid in advance. Please contact the SRC secretary to discuss your requirements.

2013 was the first year that Stainmore Railway Company ran a programme of Murder Mystery Events with the award winning After Dark Murder Mystery team.

These events start at 7pm and include a buffet meal with soft drinks (guests can bring their own alcohol at no additional charge). They involve a fully interactive Murder Mystery event led by the After Dark Murder Mystery team including a train ride (subject to availability) with prizes for the winners. Guests are very welcome to attend in costume if they choose, but this is optional and we would recommend warm clothing for events from September - Easter.

Tickets can be purchased in advance or on the night but advance notice is needed for specific dietary requirements.

The events proved very popular and have been reviewed favorably on the Trip Advisor  website, so why not try one out for yourself and a group of friends. 


If you are looking to make a weekend out of it then there are a number of B & Bs in Kirkby Stephen which can be viewed via Tripadvisor and there are links to some on our local accommodation pages.
