Apedale Valley Light Railway

Steam locomotive "Stanhope"

The Trust currently operates the Apedale Valley Light Railway and is constructing a new museum to display its collection of industrial narrow gauge equipment.

Much of this has been gathered from various industries around the UK in the last 40 years, and in doing so we aim to educate and entertain both the general public and the railway enthusiast.

An important aspect is that it should be a working museum, not simply a collection of static exhibits.
