July 2020


Due to the Coronavirus epidemic the railway has been closed, however over the last month volunteer work has been expanding and getting back to some semblance of normality. The contractor who was restoring Leeming Bar station house has completed their work funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The next stage will be the internal decoration and fittings. There are a few photos of the restoration here.
