Wensleydale Railway resumes services after more than a year

Services on the Wensleydale Railway will resume this weekend after more than a year.

The line will reopen with a regular service between Bedale and Scruton stations.

Rachael Roberts, Wensleydale Railway spokesperson, said: “Board your train in the ancient market town of Bedale, and travel to Scruton station where you can see our award winning recreation of a country station at the turn of the 20th century.

“Our interpretive guides will show you around and explain what life was like at the station and its surroundings over 100 years ago. Take a stroll into Scruton and enjoy a drink or lunch at the Coore Arms or follow one of many short walks through farmland and on peaceful roads.

“Return via Leeming Bar and enjoy a behind the scenes sneak preview of the work being carried out to restore the station house to its condition in the Edwardian period.”

Passengers can travel out on a selected train and return to Bedale by any later train.

Numbers will be limited to maintain Covid distancing and masks will be required.
