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.

Autumn Begins .....

Vic greasing the digger .....
..... before heading to Sunniside to flail more of the lineside
At East Tanfield, Nigel applying a screed to the station floor ......
...... Dennis & Cameron fetching the dry mortar mix ......
..... & Ian screeding another area of the floor
Steve digging his way through the concrete for the water into the building
Nigel working on more guttering
Dennis fixing laths for the insulation & outer roof layer
