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.

East Tanfield Drains

Digging a trench for the rainwater drain from East Tanfield station
A drain extends along the platform frontage of ET station building
I'm laying pipework
