In the light of current and ever-changing government advice, the Tyne Valley Community Rail Partnership are currently assessing the impact on their current projects.
We have delayed an event planned for early July to later in the year. Our other projects and our education work are postponed. Malcolm Chainey, Chair of TVCRP, said “at this early stage, it is not possible to provide any definitive plan, but rest assured we will be working in the background for the long-term benefit of all the communities of the Tyne Valley Railway area”.
We are committed to ensure the safety of all our volunteers in their various roles and will be contacting them. In the meantime, we advise that they follow government advice in relation to coronavirus.
Train companies, including Northern,have announced concessions in respect of rail tickets purchased in advance. Amended timetables are operating throughout the country. More information is available on websites and social media.
