Special Service Notice

Weekends 14th & 15th September and 21st & 22nd September

Annually, in September, we have a week devoted to repairing our track and civil infrastructure. Occasionally we need to extend this if the repair job is too big to complete in a week! This year is one of those occasions. September 2019 will be one of those occasions, as we need three weeks to complete a repair to a retaining wall at ‘Ebor Lane’ near Haworth (the bridge made famous at the end of The Railway Children film).
