Alford Valley Community Railway

A Railway owned by the Community for the Community!

Our Mission

To establish a community run attraction enabling local people and visitors to explore the rural and agricultural history of the Howe of Alford. Our visitors will be engaged, entertained and educated by the history of the original railway as well as future technological developments.
This community run asset will support the economical sustainability of the village recognising the need to evolve toward a climate friendly operation embracing that message within all-inclusive volunteering and visitor opportunities.

Bringing the Railway back to life

The Alford Valley Community Railway has agreed a phased approach to reinstating the railway covering the existing stations, sheds, turntable and track.
