Tanfield Railway Friends

Tanfield Railway Friends (formerly Tanfield Railway Association) has been in existence for over 30 years and in 2009/10 the organisation took on a revitalised format with a written constitution for the first time. 

Tanfield Railway Friends is a membership focused organisation and needs to be able to meet the needs and aspirations of its members whilst at the same time contributing towards the goals of the wider Tanfield Railway.

Tanfield Railway Friends fund raises and contributes to specific projects on the Tanfield Railway so you can see visible benefit going in to our wonderful heritage. Our latest donations have included monies towards the restoration of the Lambton, Hetton & Joicey Collies brake van, to paint for the exterior of the new building at East Tanfield station and new picnic tables for Andrews House station, for example.

Tanfield Railway Friends has a defined development plan to further support the Tanfield Railway, this can be broken down into three clear themes:

  • Ensure Sustainability
  • Increase the contribution to the goals of the Tanfield Railway
  • Improve the satisfaction of members
