You may have seen the current display in the newly refurbished platform 1 at Haltwhistle featuring dog breeds associated with the area and images of some of the current doggy residents in the Haltwhistle area.
We are now starting to work on the next exhibition for the waiting room which will feature 1900 years of local history. Our plan is that each poster focuses on a significant event or period in the history of one of the 11 parishes in the Haltwhistle area. We have offers of help for some of the parishes but would love to get some ideas and help for Bardon Mill, Melkridge, Plenmeller with Whitfield, Knaresdale with Kirkhaugh.
Do you live in one of these villages? Did your family have connections with these parishes? Do you have an interest in local history? Can you help us to research interesting events in history which we can feature in the next exhibition?
We’re asking for your ideas. 300 to 500 words of text to help us tell the story with three to five images on the chosen subject. It doesn’t have to be a polished piece, we can edit and check before we create the final design. Original art work and photos are preferred; we can help with scanning if required. Otherwise we will need to check quality and permissions for all images found online.
The new timetable starts on Sunday 15 May 2022 so please check to see if there any changes to your journey times.
A printable timetable can also be downloaded here.
We recommend that you check for any changes to the timetable, disruption or engineering work before you start any journey. The National Rail journey planner provides information about services throughout the country..

Community Rail Partnerships, train companies and industry partners are again highlighting the dangers of trespass on the railway using the annual Backtrack competition.
The competition was launched on 5 May with the support of ScotRail at Glasgow's Queen Street Station.
We’re supporting this year’s Backtrack competition which aims to reduce trespassing on Britain’s railways. This year, the focus is on people who trespass on tracks for likes and shares on social media. It’s dangerous, people! @backtrack_comp. Here’s a video to explain. pic.twitter.com/xnvgn4Jccy— ScotRail (@ScotRail) May 6, 2022
