Stainmore Railway Company at Kirkby Stephen East

In 1997 there was no track left on site and the area was totally overgrown with 7.5 tonnes of fly-tip on site. Track-laying commenced in 1998 and progressed as funds and time permitted. The site was gradually cleared and we had a number of grants to fund this. 

By 2010 we had laid enough track and gained approval to run trains and our first passenger service ran in 2011. The track layout is continually evolving and this page will outline future work.
