The South Tynedale Railway is England's highest narrow gauge railway winding northwards from its home at Alston in Cumbria for 3½ miles into Northumberland and the current terminus at Lintley Halt, following the route of the former standard gauge Alston to Haltwhistle branch line which officially closed on 1st May 1976.
