Tanfield Ghost Train
Do you dare take a trip on the Tanfield Ghost Train? Visit the Tanfield Railway on the 29th and 30th October for a spine tingling, hair-raising journey along the World's Oldest Railway. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for creatures lurking in the dark and things that go 'shunt' in the night!
