Visiting Locos for the Gala

Tanfield Railway's "Legends of Industry" gala will take place on 10 and 11 September 2011, with the photographic evening being 6pm - 10pm on Friday 9th.

Two visiting locos are being planned.   Agecroft No. 1 from Manchester's Museum of Science and Industry is likely to visit.   No. 1 is a 14" Robert Stephenson & Hawthorn 0-4-0ST works number 7416 built 1948 in Newcastle for Agecroft Power Station, where it worked until 1980.   It has been restored and returned to use earlier this year at Manchester MoSI.

No. 3 7681/1951 at Swindon)
