I certainly hope so! Just had a lovely walk to check out how the Aln Valley Railway is coming along and they are certainly making good progress. You’ll be able to see the steam rising as the trains progress down the newly laid track and listen carefully from the cottages and you’ll hear the hiss of steam and occasional toot of the horn.
Use the walk map entitled ‘Lesbury’ on the following link to follow the path along to Aln Valley Railway. At the top of our track cross over the Alnmouth Road and then at the end of the wire fence opposite you’ll see the map board, head down the bank beside that and follow the path shown towards the old railway line.
