Trains have returned to a section of England's highest railway line for the first time in more than 40 years.
South Tynedale Railway, a narrow gauge line in the Pennines, is built on the track bed of the Alston Line which closed in 1976.
Operated by a preservation society, it runs steam trains between Alston in Cumbria and Lintley in Northumberland.
In what has been described as a "milestone" it now runs to Slaggyford, further up the Tyne Valley.
Richard Graham, chair of the South Tynedale Railway Preservation Society, said: "Opening the extension to Slaggyford is the first step towards fulfilling the aim of aim of recreate a community railway linking Alston Moor, South Tynedale and the wider North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with the national railway network at Haltwhistle.
