Attraction details
Owner description: In 1991, The Woodhorn Museum (Wansbeck Council) was given an ex mining locomotive and three man-riding cars by the NCB, following the closure of Vane Tempest Colliery near Durham.It was decided rather than allow these vehicles to become a static exhibition, it would serve the heritage of the community better if they were made operational and become a visitor attraction. A volunteer group was formed to manage and build a railway on which the vehicles could operate.

“So sweet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2013 via mobile

The little narrow gage train is ran by a group of lovely fellas who aim to make you smile. The train ride links the museum and woodhorn grange together. We took a ride and got off to go for a soft play time for the kids and to feed the ducks and swans. Lovely

I'm verry pleased with all the staff there all professionals, the train ride was verry nice. Only thing that could make it better is if they had a steam locomotive.
