In 2021, our Infrastructure Director, Allan White, has undertaken a survey of the 14 stations along the Tyne Valley Railway corridor assisted by Station Adopters, Community Ambassadors, our officer and other Directors.

The review looked at the buildings, facilities and infrastructure surrounding each of the stations. You can read the report here

During 2022, the stations were revisited and an updated report prepared, which you can read here.


If you are looking for a week-long placement? Would you  like an insight into the varied work of a Community Rail Partnership and a glimpse of what the rail industry can offer?

We can offer a week-long placement for a young person interested in a number of careers.

Bardon Mill walk to The Sill 2022 frontHave you thought of using public transport when planning your next walk?   

Take the train, sit back and enjoy your journey to Bardon Mill then walk to Vindolanda or The Sill National Discovery Centre and explore one or both of these attractions. 

With some spectacular views of the Tyne Valley area to enjoy, why not leave the car at home and have an adventure on the train.

We have produced a leaflet to help you; it features a map and directions as well as ideas for places to eat and drink.  You can download a copy of our leaflet here.



As well as the obvious jobs - drivers, train managers and conductors, staff working at stations – there is a huge range of opportunities in marketing, finance, management, human resources, train planning, engineering, catering, signalling and more.


Many train companies offer industry placements for university students.

In 2018-19, with the support of CrossCountry, we were able to provide a student with an internship and it is hoped that we will be able to do so again in the future
