Steam Trains Tomorrow

Twizell will haul trains on the world's oldest railway (1725) from Andrews House for Sunniside and Causey at 11 am, 12.15, 1.45, 3 and 4.15 pm this Sunday.  There will be no passenger trains on the modern 1839 section beyond Causey to East Tanfield due to track maintenance.

Twizell is one of world's few remaining locomotives built by Robert Stephenson & Co - in 1891 in Newcastle upon Tyne.   Twizell is owned by Beamish Museum, but on loan to the Tyneside Locomotive Museum Trust - whose collection has a focus on locomotives built and/or worked in the North East of England.
