A big day for the Tyne Valley Community Rail Partnership. It has been the launch with the guests including two MPs of a tri-partite partnership: Ourselves, Newcastle College Rail Academy and Cross Country. The months ahead will see Rail Academy students undertaking practical tasks along the line. Cross Country has funded a classroom and this superb photo montage. In shot is Haltwhistle and the three people (L to R) are TVCRP officer Fiona Forsythe, Chris Leech Cross Country's Business Community Manager and Anna Weeks Northern's North East Region.
