Did you know? Tanfield Waggonway was 4' gauge; Hawks Waggonway (Gateshead) 4'3"; Wylam Waggonway used 5' gauge; Willington Waggonway 4'8", hence Killingworth Waggonway 4'8" & from there the Stephensons' influence spread to Hetton, the S&DR, the L&MR, across Britain & the world.

Shunting

Ian removing the 8 wheel bogie from the track
The Planet shunting vans & waggons which were removed from the Andrews House branch to enable a van to be offloaded before leaving the railway .....
..... now they're being put back one at a time due to the headshunt restriction
The opportunity has been taken to place Kearsley No.3 in a more accessible & photographic location for the forthcoming Made in the North East event
