Imagine a place where time had stopped and you could enjoy a steam railway experience from the past? Well, you’re thinking about Kirkby Stephen East!
Savour the atmosphere of a country station as it would have been in the 1950s. You’re sure to learn lots on your visit and have an enjoyable time.
We are home to a number of historic Victorian and other vintage locomotives, carriages and wagons which are well worth a look. You can explore our station, which was built in 1861 and served the community here for 100 years, visit the glamorous 1930s buffet car (when trains are running) and wander around our small museum.

Our Aim:- To design, build and operate a North Eastern Railway Class O, LNER Class G5, 0-4-4 Passenger Tank Locomotive.


The Class G5 Locomotive Company Limited has been founded by a group of like minded Northern railway enthusiasts, who intend to recreate a full-size prototypical North Eastern Railway Class O (LNER Class G5) 0 – 4 – 4 Passenger Tank Locomotive, initially for use on heritage railways such as Weardale, Wensleydale and Aln Valley but later on the main line.

No 77 ‘Norwood’, an RSH Saddle tank locomotive was the last working Steam Locomotive in the North East of England not in preservation, so it is an important part of our heritage.
